It is smart to start thinking about becoming more self-reliant when it comes to our food supplies. We have seen the effects of the Covid-19 on our economies or pockets. We cannot continue to depend totally on the traditional ways of getting our food-stuff from supermarkets and/or food retailers. It is time to grow our own food or, at least, to produce part of what we consume. Therefore, AgroUbuntu Solutions recommends to focus on fast growing fruits and veggies in general and those that can be planted in winter time in particular.
Some fast growing veggies and fruits are: Baby carrots, Beetroots, Broccoli, Cucumber, Green onions, Lettuce, Radishes, Spinach, Sunflower shoots, Turnips, Zucchini.
Other winter crops, although not that fast-growing, that can be considered to plant in South Africa are: broad beans, cauliflower, onions, peas and rocket cabbage.
