I am not even going to pretend to know anything about growing anything but mold in my bathroom, but, corporate foods are becoming more and more tasteless and less and less nutritious , and even sometimes down right dangerous with pesticides and when they are GMO.
As an urban suburbanite (2 miles from the Pentagon and 6 1/2 miles from the White House) I am going to put in an honest effort into being more responsible for growing more of the food I prepare for myself and loved ones.
A couple of nights ago I picked up a cute basil plant when I was at Wegmans and then today I picked up baby cabbage and beet plants as well as a viola plant at my favorite organic place in the Washington DC area My Organic Market or also called MOM’s.
When at Mom’s I also picked up a couple of bags of organic potting soil, and with the help of my darling BF, we had all the plants replanted in no time.
Now all I have to do is make sure they are watered and get enough sun and hope they will actually grow for me (yikes!)
Another thing from today is I placed an order two nights ago with a local family run raw food business called Natural Zing for raw cacao butter and hemp seeds and whooosh it came on my doorstep two days later (gotta love it!)
I am looking forward to making some special raw chocolates for friends and some nommies with the hemp seeds.
That’s all for today …Ta!
