The empty shelves in the fruit section of our local supermarket (thanks to the current volcanic ash flight restrictions) only serve to reinforce how reliant we as a country are on imported food.
But like many people lucky enough to have access to some outside space, we grow some of our own veg, admittedly with mixed success.

Beginning with a couple of small areas converted from flower beds, we've managed to burst out of our own back garden and have now taken over a 30 foot x 30 foot piece of land behind our house, which has been cultivated for decades, but has recently fallen back into a bit of a wilderness.
