GORGEOUS GREENS: Every week at the South Pasadena Farmers Market, I get this delicious, super healthful salad blend from Mt. Olive Farms. I love it. It’s a rotating mix of #shiso , #okinawaspinach , kales, chard, #moringa , edible #Tradescantia , Good King Henry, basil , #endive and more. I highly recommend it to the fullest degree- it will knock your socks off. Of course, we will have the edible Tradescantia plants in the spring and always have plenty of my personal love, perennial OK #spinach. Always push your culinary and gardening envelopes, people, you will be so pleasantly surprised! :)
CILANTRO BESTIES: If you are looking to clear out some of that #Fukushima radiation from your system or plain ‘ol detoxify your your body, you best make best friends with #cilantro. It is easy and actually better to grow from seed than from transplant. Not only will you have an ample supply of the good stuff, but when you let some flower it will attract beneficials galore. Plus #seeds for the next time you plant it. Brilliant and easy, how we like it! :)
NEVER GET HIGH ON YOUR OWN SUPPLY : I blow through so much Tulsi and Stinging Nettle #herb, that I can’t even keep up with my own demand. Mountain Rose Herbs is my go to for bulk herbs, plus oils, teas, creams, bottles and all things Herbal Love. Also, if you are curious about herb crafting, they offer super easy instructions for tinctures, infusions and more. If you don’t know, now you know. ;) Check it out and #makeyourown !
