In light of the fast rising cost of food at the grocery store, and from the looks of things it may keep rising, I thought it may be a good idea to suggest that if possible maybe start growing a home garden to save money and harvest healthier organic vegetables and fruits. I thought to post a couple suggestions and there are a lot of websites online for ideas and suggestions for gardens, from small backyard gardens to indoor apartment container gardens and other good ideas. Here are a few.

Ghoti Ichthus

Pray so they do not serve alone. Ephesians 6:10-20
There are books about container gardening, grow bag gardening, and vertical gardening that are helpful if there's limited space, or flexibility to bring plants inside is needed or desired. Hydroponics and aquaponics, too.

The Ball Blue Book is the standard reference for preserving what you grow (canning, dehydrating, freezing)
Important to grow varieties of whatever veggie or fruit that will grow/thrive in one's USDA Zone AND is a good choice for use fresh and/or will preserve well in a way one is willing or able to do.

When I lived in apartments I grew a few herbs including oregano, thyme, and italian parsley. I like to do a lot of cooking and making marinara sauce is one of my favorite things to do.
