There are nine main vitamins we can find in everyday food crops and all of them can be grown at home. Vitamins D and B12 are absorbed through sunlight, and in meat and dairy products, so unless you are keeping your own hens, some vitamins may have to be 'bought' in - although that still doesn't mean hitting the pill bottles... buy organic fresh produce as far as possible and grow the rest of the vitamins you and your family need.
