I love my vegetable garden! A lot of things have changed for my family and me in the last few years; one big thing is we are <strong>growing more vegetables</strong> at home rather than buying from the grocery store.
The grocery store is my last lazy resort when it comes to getting my vegetables and I would be lucky if they were labeled with the country where they were grown.
More of our friends having their own vegetable gardens or as they say, “researching” on the Internet the benefits of growing their own food.
Well, I have also been researching what vegetables I can grow at home in my garden that are rich with nutrients and also what fruits and vegetables have antioxidant benefits.
I am shying away from vitamins and supplements. I feel that by working a little harder at home tweaking and adjusting what vegetables and fruit I can actually grow, the benefits of eating healthy is better than supplementing bad eating choices.
Mistakes happen a lot in my vegetable garden, the plants don’t always make it but I understand more when it comes to which vegetables, fruits and herbs I can grow consistently.
The local farmer’s markets is where I try to get the rest of my produce and it is a good way to make connections with people who might be able to supply you with seasonal vegetables and/or fruit for the rest of the year.
Not the Landfill. All of our bags, pallets and pallet wrap can be recycled. Our plastic is made from no. 4 LDPE (Low-density polyethylene) plastic which can be recycled by returning clean, dry, empty plastic bags to recycling drop off centers or retailers and municipalities (curbside collection also) that provide designated plastic bag recycling. Wooden pallets can be reused or recycled at designated wood recycling areas with your municipality.
We believe that all soils should have a required minimum set of testing standards when it comes to growing. That is why we contacted O.M.R.I. years ago to start the process of approving SEA SOIL. We regularly test our SEA SOIL for heavy metals, ecoli and even fecal coliforms to make sure SEA SOIL is the best choice for gardeners and growers.
