If there is one thing that has really grounded me recently, and made me appreciate the natural world in a much less superficial way, it has been growing my own food. Last year I began experimenting with aeroponics and hydroponics. I managed to grow a monster tomato plant, and I was well and truly bitten (no, savagely chowed down on) by the growing bug. There is nothing like taking care to raise a plant, and then having your devotion to said plant returned by a bountiful harvest of food. What’s more its fresh as you like! First tomatoes of the year!
