Grow It

Use part of your yard to plant a vegetable garden. You'd be surprised at how many types you can grow. Also, look into starting a community vegetable garden on unused or abandoned plots. Here are a few Web sites to get you started:

Burpee: A family-owned gardening and seed company that's been around since 1876.

 

Renee's Garden: Seeds in unique packets, including watercolor illustrations and planting instructions. Also sells organic seeds.

 

Planet Natural: Provides quality natural and organic products, including fertilizers, seeds, and gardening equipment.

 

Park Seed: Offers untreated, non-genetically-modified seeds, including certified organic.

 

Seeds of Change: Open-pollinated, organically grown, heirloom, and traditional vegetable and herb seeds.

 

Smith & Hawken: High-quality but expensive gardening products.

 

Gardens Alive: Environmentally responsible pest control.

I really dislike the way you have this article reading. I like page numbers, this is confusing and I probably won't forward to other friends who could use this because it's so confusing. You see the "next" button and I think it's the next story...page numbers are easier to follow.

Cutting vegetables does not deplete any of the nutrients. In fact, some vitamins only become "active" when they are cooked. It's the method of cooking however that will either add unncessary calories or the vitamins will be leaked into the water for example. Steaming is the best way to cook fresh vegetables. If you're looking for a cheaper way to consume veggies, try purchasing frozen veggies. As a poor college student, that is the only way I could consume them without them going bad!

There are four main things in my fridge-- Whole grain bread, soy milk, fruits and veggies. When one buys pretty much nothing but fruits and veggies, it's very easy to consume them.
