• Grow Your Own!

    by  • March 3, 2013 • inspiration, recipe


    This is so amazing and exciting! I remember my mom starting avocados this way when I was a kid. It’s the ultimate reuse/recycle project! If you can grow some of your own food, you control what’s in it, you know there are no chemicals in there. I am accumulating several pots and small dishes for my own mini-garden, just because I no longer have a yard doesn’t mean I can’t eat things that I grow myself!
