Create a 'garden of eatin'
(NC)—With the cost of food on the rise, there's no better time to start growing your own organic herbs, fruits and vegetables. The best part about incorporating edible items into the garden (aside from the taste and health benefits) is that you don't need to be an avid gardener or have a large garden space to get started.

Herbs and vegetables can easily be grown right in your backyard garden or in containers on your patio or balcony. Certain items such as tomatoes come in a variety of vibrant colours and when mixed in with traditional flowers and plants, make for breathtaking displays.

Visit the nursery at your local Lowe's store (lowes.ca) and check out the wide variety of Bonnie plants and seeds to help you get started. Popular varieties to include are:

Oregano

• Cherry tomatoes

Sage

Peppermint

Dill

Thyme

Peppers

• Seed variety packs

• Fruit bushes
