Mixed salad greens, arugula, and kale are coming up in the garden!
In support of my ideal of living simply, I am a big believer in growing as much as you can, even if all you have is a planter in the window or space on the counter. That’s the simplest and most natural method of feeding ourselves, and it’s inexpensive and fulfilling.
Mixed baby greens are one of the easiest to grow and they can be harvested continuously until they bolt, or flower. Just cut the leaves near ground level with scissors, and they will grow back again. Growing spinach is another easy spring meal.
Because this food goes to nourish our children and ourselves, growing organically makes the most sense to us. The natural father knows that there’s no need to worry about washing anything from our garden before eating it, and if we eat a little of the soil every time we eat from the garden, then we are actively building our immune system with soil based micro-organisms and minerals.
