Food. We all need it - and it weighs heavy on the weekly budget. But what if I showed you how easy it is to grow your own - from scraps?

It's a story that's all too common in Australia these days. Purse strings are tight, the bills are biting and the cost of healthy fruit and vegetables just seems to keep on climbing.

If you're anything like me, it's a weekly annoyanced to do the weekly shop and find that all the crappy, unhealthy foods seem to be a lot cheaper than nutritious, balanced fare.

But not any more!

What if I was to tell you that it is dead easy to grow your own bountiful crop of seasonal fruit and vegetables - all from the food scraps in your kitchen?

Pretty cool, huh?

Think strawberries, raspberries, tomatoes, all your citrus fruits, pineapples and even avocado. 

Sound too good to be true? It's not!

How To Regrow Fruit From Your Kitchen


Watch this informative and very simple YouTube video to see how you can have your own seedlings ready for transfer in just six to eight weeks.

And, having grown my own vegies in a patch at home before, I can vouch for the fact that home-grown always tastes better..

If you do decided to give this project a crack,, please keep us informed on your progress. You can send your photos to me by clicking here. I'll post a selection of the best for our readers to enjoy and be inspired by.
