When was the last time that you played in the dirt?

When was the last time that you played in the dirt?


When was the last time you actually planted something in the ground, on purpose, to watch it grow? To nurture it into a finished plant? To eat something straight off the vine without washing it in massive amounts of disinfectant?

It is so very easy to do this!!!

A pot of lettuce, a cucumber vine crawling across your front yard fence, a row of sweet corn along the back fence....



Did you know that you can grow fresh ginger in a pot inside your home? You can also grow turmeric and many other spices/seasonings inside your home, even if they are tropical in nature!


Lettuce, as seen here, is in an outside bed, but for just 1-2 people, you can grow it in a shallow pot either on your porch or inside your home.





My point is, you do NOT have to go to the grocery store to get access to all of your food!
Put a seed in the dirt, add a bit of water and light, and watch it grow!
