Fruit or nut trees are not expensive to plant nor do they require much care. Planting an apple tree or a walnut tree will provide you with plentiful organic food! You'll have so much you have to give them away to family and friends!
If you live in an apartment or a small house you can buy a 'dwarf' fruit or nut tree which is capable of living in a pot on the patio.
