I love fresh herbs and vegetables for the pasta and homemade pizzas I make for my family, but really for every meal I cook. When I buy it either freshly cut or actually growing in a pot, it withers and dies quickly and pre-cut is very expensive, also organic is my choice but it can also be expensive.  Recently, however, I found this video on Youtube that demonstrated how to quickly you can grow vegetable and lettuce plants to an almost infinite number of plants in recycled plastic bottles to have a never-ending food supply. He grows all kinds of plants on a rooftop garden for very little to no cash outlay. In fact if you did it for one year using this method you could have so much food from your plants, you might never have to buy any fresh food at the grocery store. The cutting and growing methods were not hard to follow at all.
