  • In my country Switzerland it's very normal to grow some food for yourself. Almost every person who's got a house or an apartment on the first floor also has a garden. My parents both grow lots of vegetables and some salad and my brother and his girlfriend also grow things. Back when I was a child, our garden was even bigger and back then, my parents also had about 10 chicken and some rabbits. The chicken gave us eggs and once in a while for a birthday or so, we'd slaughter one (or a rabbit) and eat it. It was almost like a very tiny, private farm :-). Now I live on my own, together with my girlfriend. Unfortunately we can't grow anything because we live on the 3rd floor and don't have a garden. Contrary to the US, owning a house in Switzerland is not normal. Especially not for young people. Houses are extremely expensive and you can only buy one after having worked for 20 years or so (most people who buy a house can only do so around the age of 40-45).
    However, we do have some basil plants and if we ever get to have a garden, I would love to grow some of my own food and maybe even have a few chicken or a sheep.

  • Tomatoes, green peppers, jalapenos, cucumbers, chives, and herbs.
    Not a lot. A pot or two of each. But it is interesting to watch it grow and develop, and to see the results of your work, with watering and everything else, when you finally have stuff to harvest.

  • Yes, a friend of mine at work lives at the country side and he has a huge field. Every year, I team with some of my friends and we go plant potatoes and in exchange we all get a share :) Not just potatoes, but that's the main thing. Small scale cabbaging, carroting, tomatoing and such.

  • My dad does. I'd like to too... It's extremely smart and useful to do so. Flowers are pretty, but they're a waste... Grow carrots, rosemary and potatoes instead. =)

  • Yeah, my family grows our own tomatoes, herbs, potatoes, cabbages and so on :P We also have a few pear & apple trees on our property. We're pretty lucky to have access to as much produce as we do so we give some of it to friends. :)
