Video: A Victory Garden For Spring

Dear brothers and sisters,

We urge you to start a victory garden for Spring.

Well do we know that many of you are still in the midst of winter, nonetheless, now is the time to start your lettuce, spinach, chard, parsley, kale and tomatoes. In our opinion, it is vital that all of us grow at least a part of the food that we eat. It seems to me that food is too important to be left entirely to others. “Grow it yourself” is no longer an option, it is a necessity.

Even if you do not have a backyard you can begin at once by growing micro-greens in your kitchen.

Let’s start, then, our victory gardens, by way of the renewal , regeneration and restoration of this American earth.

With appreciation and respect,

Jesse Schwartz PhD

Honey Dates are a very unique date that is grown from seed as opposed to being clonally propagated from cuttings as are most dates. This means that each Honey Date is unique. Different trees produce variations that are smooth, light, moist and melt in your mouth. Always delicious but never exactly the same.

These organic Deglet Noor Dates are a golden-amber color with a translucent skin. A semi-dry date with a delicate flavor. Deglet Noor means “Date of Light.”
These machine pitted dates are great for cooking, baking or salads, and excellent when stuffed with cream cheese. They ship well and keep well. Great for traveling and backpacking – and school lunches too!
