Grow your own.
“Plant your own organic garden,” suggests Jimbo Someck, president of Jimbo’s Naturally!, a natural foods grocery chain in San Diego. “Not only will you get fresh-picked taste, but you’ll enjoy the fruits of your labor and save money at the same time.” Start your garden with three basic plants that grow well in almost every part of the country: Tomatoes, basil, and edible flowers, or try an herb garden. No garden space? No problem: Many herbs grow quite well indoors.
