I am growing my own vegetables, I am growing potatoes, carrots, chilli, ginger, sweet potato, various types of lettice, various herbs and coffee. With the fruit tree I have an orange tree, lime and lemon trees. It is very relaxing and great fun. The food tastes better, fresher and cheaper. The coffee plants were planted today, it will take 2 years for the first real harvist. The first year I will collect seeds so I can grow more coffee.

I have a large garden with tomatoes, cucumbers, zucchini, 5 types of peppers, snow peas, beans, asparagus, garlic and onions, dill, cilantro, oregano, and basil. I kept digging more space so the wife can use it for her flowers. I told her that you cannot eat the flowers and all I got was looks, so I kept digging.

Used to grow veggies in the UK but a Shanghai apartment is not really suitable but we do have tomato plants that I showed our 10 year old how to grow to aid her understanding of where food comes from.

When I was a child in countryside, we basically ate what we grew, all kind of vegetables, grains and others .
But now,  my mother doesn't bother to grow that much since it's very convenient to buy
