Grow Your Own Food August 24, 2010

Aloha! Having fun in the garden again…

We just planted a ton O’ seeds the other day. I love growing our own food. Not only is it so freeeekin tasty, Whoa! It is just sooo awesome to watch as you place a tiny little miniscule seed into dirt, add water and some sunshine (and love) and it transforms before your very eyes into a large beauteous LIVING nutrition providing plant!!!! I am just astounded! 🙂

We planted lettuce, purple cabbage, kale, 3 different chards, tomato, broccoli, collards, cilantro, chiles, and even a few different flowers. We also transplanted lilikoi, mint, papayas, night blooming jasmine and lavender. It is amazing how easy it really is. We filled some containers with dirt, poked a few holes into it and filled em with seeds! Within a week we will see sprouts on some of them. I can’t believe how fast they grow – and soon we get enjoy the yumminess and make some amazing food with our bounty!
