Video: Sowing Seeds: Absolutely Everything You Need to Know by Grow Veg

Dear brothers and sisters,

Spring will soon be here.We urge you to get growing, America. Imagine! Your backyard, a bio-intensive vegetable garden.Your front yard, an heirloom apple orchard. If you live in an apartment, join a community garden.

There is so much help for you out there.You have only to ask.

Here’s a magnificent video showing you just how to get started with sewing seeds. It’s that time of year, brothers and sisters. It’s time to sew your lettuce, spinach, kale and chard. And tomatoes – but of course! If you don’t have a greenhouse or a cold frame, a west facing window will do. Set your seed trays in front of it and water daily.

Hug the earth, it will sustain you!

May we wish you and your family a springtime of good health, prosperity and success.

Green Split Pea – Organic

Green peas are believed to be a distant relative of the field pea that was native to the Middle East and Central Asia. Since prehistoric times, dried peas have been consumed and were prized by the ancient civilizations of Egypt, Greece, China and Rome.

Green split peas are not only tasty and simple to cook, but are also a good source of protein, iron and dietary fiber.

 

 

 

 

Vanilla Powder – Organic

We have brought Organic Vanilla Powder back, despite its high price, as we have gotten so many inquiries. It is considered by some to be a culinary indispensable. It is made by pulverizing the whole dried beans to a fine powder. It is well suited to incorporation into liquid-sensitive mixtures, such as some icings and melted chocolate, where even a small amount of liquid could create a problem. In addition, the flavor of vanilla powder is more intense than that of most extracts and does not dissipate even with prolonged cooking. Vanilla powder will keep well, stored in an opaque, airtight container in a cool, dry place.

 

 

 

 

Macadamia Nut Butter – Alive & Organic

Made from Hawaiian Macadamia nuts that have just arrived. We invite you to taste their aliveness in this outstanding nut butter.
