Grow Your Own April Roundup
Grow Your Own is a monthly food blogging event that celebrates the foods we grow or raise ourselves and the dishes we make using our homegrown products. This event is hosted by Andrea of Andrea's Recipes.
Even if I live in a crowded city, where living space is a premium, I think that growing our own food is important. For one thing, we know that our food is 100 percent organically grown, without the 'side-effects' of chemical fertilizers and pesticides. We are also assured that our ingredients are super fresh. From the land straight to the kitchen - this way, no nutrients are lost in transport. Finally, growing our own food is practical. With our economy in perpetual recession, it is a big help to our budget if we do not have to buy the food available in our backyard.
Here's the round-up for this month's Grow Your Own. It is a very interesting array of produce and dishes from different countries around the world.
