[Tutor] How to add an Image in Grid mode with Python and Tkinter?

Steadily trying to learn Python and Tkinter here with our students...

Am working on a simple 'Price of Cereal Crop' calculator....and have made a
start with the code below...

I'm trying to simply add an image to our program to make the GUI more
interesting...but most of the tutorials describe using the 'Pack'
method.... not the grid method of layout...

and apparently you cannot use 'Pack' and 'Grid' in the one program...

Can anyone explain how I could add an image to this program? Or show me an
example of a simple program that lets someone simply add an image and use
the grid layout in combination.

Thanks for any clues at all!

from tkinter import *
root = Tk("Crop Calculator")

# abutton = Button(root, text="Crop Prices in Australia")

#Main Heading Labels

answerlabel=Label(root, text="wheatwords")

# abutton.pack(side='left', fill='both', expand=True)
