New Horizons

By  | 

spring is finally here, and i’ve been looking forward to gardening again! last summer; rosemary, lemon thyme, and basil were a delicious success. perhaps i’ll try something different this year by adding zucchini, tomatoes, kale and chives into the mix. i am pleased to have this new horizon for my flowers, vegetables, and herbs. cooking with my own homegrown vegetables and herbs adds a special vibe to my family’s meals. family and friends jokingly call me “farmer sy,” and i get it. cooking for my family becomes a joy because i am sharing wellness and love with them.
we have moved so far away from the source of our food and from knowing how it’s grown or raised. industrialization and factory farming have made food more available, plentiful, transportable, and resistant to pests and drought, but with the ever growing numbers of obese men, women, and children, it’s time to consider that perhaps we’ve lost something in our so called food. i enjoy gardening and growing real food; not buying something in a box or a can which contains at least a dozen of chemicals in it.
so now that spring is here, explore your own new horizons by planting an herbal pot or container garden. it doesn’t have to be big, as a matter of fact, it’s better to start small. check out the photo of my garden from last year for inspiration. i’d be happy to hear about your garden and the delicious fruits you plan on growing!
