My herbs and veggies garden, on whatever pots i can get my hands on, we have a bigger patch of land downstairs, below the deck but the soil is not too rich, i think we need to amend it first and my small arms do not have the strength to shovel the thick dirt so there you are, my mini garden on pots.
I am very happy to have grown Rosemary from seeds, out of the packet, i have two small Rosemary plants. I was told that even if the snow falls on these plants, they will grow back again. Not taking any chances, i would like to put them inside when the frost appears.
What i can tell you is that it takes very little of your time to do a little gardening or so, but the benefits are immensely both gratifying to your health and mental well being. I love cutting on the leaves and pick on tender shoots for my salads and sandwiches, my new favorite being Arugula provides me with crispy leaves everyday. This is just from one packet of seeds i sowed late March.
The only thing missing in my garden is Spinach, i did sow some but they did not grow, i probably used very thick soil on top, maybe the seeds are old etc., Once you have the basic herbs, you are pretty much going to be very inspired cooking and eating healthy all season.
You can have the herbs, fresh (do not cook them) on top of pastas, sandwiches and soups or any dish you make. I got to the habit of eating them raw since i survived cancer 2003, raw foods provide you with the natural healing anti-oxidants. I believe i have nothing to lose anyway, and so hello, rather than going back to chemotherapy and radiation therapy, i would be more than happy to munch on these things. It was hard at first, but once you get the hang of it, i became addicted to the idea and the after feel, i started planting my own veggies so i can harvest anytime i want. I do not use any pesticides, no chemical fertilizers, not even detergents to ward off insects.
