I believe it worth growing your own fruit and vegetables in terms of time, cost and money. How you set about growing some of your own food will depend on which of those resources you have most of. A person short on time will need to find a way of growing things that is not so time and labour intensive. While a person who is short of cash will need to find an economical way of getting started growing their own food.
Growing Vegetables in Raise beds.
The raised bed method of growing vegetables saves time once it is set up but to start with it is quite labour intensive as the raised beds will need to be built and filled with a suitable growing medium. Once you have the raised beds set up, then the time spent planting and weeding the vegetable growing area should be less. They also seem to retain the moisture more when you water them because you are able to add moisture retentive compost to the growing medium.

Growing Your Own Fruit and Vegetables
We grow our own fruit and vegetables for our meals for as much of the year as we can. Without a greenhouse we have to buy shop food in the winter months but in the spring, summer and autumn we often have enough to share with family and friends.
