Looks lovely doesn't it
To buy this at the shops, you are looking at about $3.99. Sprayed with goodness knows what and in those plastic bags... to keep the shelf life longer.
I picked this today out of my garden, baby rock and baby lettuce leaves. Organic and fresher than what you'll buy anywhere.
These leafy greens are being grown out in my vegie patch. If you want to grow them yourself and don't have the space in your garden. Why not grow them in a large pot or a broccoli box from your local green grocer's shop. Often these are given away free.
These plants are able to be left in the pots (or soil) for weeks and just pick the leaves every few days. Weeks of picking from the plants with not much needed to care for them.
Can't get any easier than that. So why not give it a try
Until next time....hoo roo
