So I planted an orchard.
Within five years, those fruit trees, which cost us one month's spending money, will be giving us free food...for years to come.
They'll be growing money.
Three easy ways to grow money are:
- Lettuces in pots. Lettuce currently costs $2.50 per lettuce at our Farmer's Market.
Lettuces sprouting from seed.
By comparison, if we buy just one packet of seed (for about $3), we can grow enough lettuces to keep a family in salad for a whole year.
There are lots of other great foods to grow in pots, so even if you don't have a garden, you can grow money this way.
- Chickens. I worked out that our free range, home laid eggs from our chickens cost us about 19c per egg.
The best eggs money can buy at the supermarket cost nearly a dollar each.
In short, our chickens lay money for us.
- Herbs in pots. Herbs such as parsley, oregano and rosemary are an outrageous cost at the supermarket.
Ours at home are free. Plant a herb garden, and you'll be harvesting free money for years.
Most herbs can even be grown from cuttings, so ask friends for a snip or two, and get started for free!
These are just some really easy examples of how to grow money. In the end, money is just energy. That's all it is. We use bank notes as an easy converter and indicator of how much energy an item is worth.
By growing your own food, you're creating free energy, straight from the sun and the earth. Every time you grow your own food, you free up cash that can instead be spent on something more useful - getting out of debt, valuable charity, buying something you can't grow yourself, saving for old age.
