#21 – Getting Fresh

Doing one thing now that will benefit you later …

This can apply to sooo many different situations, like exercising to have more energy, eating healthy to avoid diseases later in life or contributing monthly to your Registered Retirement Savings Plan.

Those are all great things but for this post, I’m keeping it simple to getting a jump start on a different aspect of #8 … growing fresher food.

Growing food when it’s dead of winter in my cold neck of the woods? Yes, indoors.

Someone near and dear to me bought my a Click and Grown Smart Garden (no endorsement) last Christmas and I only just set it up a few days ago (it took all of 5 minutes!)

The basil is already started to sprout and I’m anxiously looking forward to reaping the benefits. And since that same loved one just gave me a small greenhouse for this Christmas, I’ll have time to get experience with this system out between now and the spring.

With all the tasteless genetically modified food out there, I’m becoming more and more serious about eating fresher and healthier produce.

If all goes well, I may be tempted to investigate the cost of a Wall Farm

A friend introduced me to the benefits of “sprouting” so I’ve been trying that out too.

What can you start now that will reap benefits of later?

  1. Tasteless is right. I never associated it with GMO, but you’re probably correct. I’ve noticed that cilantro at a specific grocery store doesn’t have an odor, which is extremely odd for cilantro, of all things. I know this isn’t what this post is about, but because you said that I’m going to investigate to see if their produce is GMO.

    • Actually, you are on point. I took a photo of a bunch of carrots at my local Asian store the other day and they were the size of eggplants! Nothing has taste and I’m convinced weird stuff is being done. My experimental basil is doing so well (with zero effort) in my Click and Grow that I am slowly falling into the rabbit hole of doing it on a bigger scale.
