I was amazed at the response to last week's email. It turns out lots of people are indoor gardening (outdoor gardening too) and growing real food. This is such a a great way to get real, fresh food. I loved hearing about sprouts, veggie starts and other things that you're doing in your homes. Several people wrote in about starting plants from seeds and cuttings as well. Mostly avocado but a couple of people mentioned pineapples (I have one of those too) and starting citrus and apples from seed.
As part of my indoor gardening effort I had mentioned mushrooms. It was fun to watch the mushrooms growing day by day and then to eat them!
While the resulting mushroom, onion, red-pepper frittata was delicious it was not picture worthy. The next step for me is to get a mushroom log and try to grow mushrooms out in my garden. Given how humid it is here in Texas I'm guessing it won't be that difficult. I'm wondering if any of you grow mushrooms, if so I'd love to hear about it.
However you connect with your food, through a CSA, gardening, or just purchasing the best quality, whole, fresh food you can, remember that real food is the key. Yes, you can eat well to be well.
And now, here's what you need to know...
