In my recent post, Grow Some Food!, I encouraged everyone to start gardening and posted a picture of my porch garden. Here is a quick update. Hopefully this will be more encouragement to get out in the dirt. Two weeks since that post it looks much fuller, tonight about 1/3 of our salad came from the garden, and I’ve got an interesting addition to the porch. See pics below!
The garden as of yesterday. Again, refer to the previous post on this for the before pic to see the progress. Especially notice the cucumber plants in front and the lettuce growth towards the back.
Here is what I pulled tonight for our salad: A nice bunch of green leaf lettuce, 2 large radishes, some cilantro, flat leaf parsley, spinach, and sweet basil.
And here is the surprise addition to the garden. I posted this article recently on our facebook page: Nutrition Philosophy Freedom. It described how you can regrow many common fruits and vegetables using the scraps. This might seem kind of simple or obvious, but it blew my mind. Its almost like I’m doing magic right in a pot! As I described in Grow Some Food! food should not be an issue around the world. And this just reinforces it. We can buy inexpensive organic lettuce from the grocery store, eat it, and then literally regrow it with some dirt and water. Pictured above is a decapitated head of romaine lettuce regrowing itself.
