Mudgee and surrounding districts are well known for producing some amazing foods, but have you thought about producing some of your own home grown foods?
Not only does it help the environment by improving your carbon footprint, but growing your own food is rewarding, and often tastes better than what you buy at the supermarket. If you can’t grow your own, the farmer’s markets are also a great place to pick up some of the best fresh foods in town!
So how do you get started if you want to grow your own fresh foods? Firstly, you should set up a dedicated veggie garden, protected from birds and other fresh food predators, and then shop around for the right type of fruit and veg for the season and climate. Lettuce and tomatoes are great!
