As the warmer weather comes in, some days nicer then others, I realize how much we need to get out into the beautiful nature.
May is here, as a business owner and home owner, it is a quest to figure out what do on a sunny day on the weekends…..gardens or work on computer? Brian is good at getting me outside, yes the thinker and computer & science guy, took me by the hand, and exclaimed, “Come outside to join me.”
I am glad I did. I sorted through some seeds we wanted to plant, ( we always seem to have so many choices).
I have been gathering heritage seeds, and organic seeds from local friends and buying on line as well. It is much better, Brian and I believe, to do so.
When I was in Italy a few years ago, I ate fresh salads and vegetables every day as well as pizza, pasta and bread, which was surprising for me to do, with no tummy ache. I realized that it was the quality of the good food that I was eating. Everything I consumed, had such great quality. It was all natural, you did not need to look for it…it was in every restaurant, and grocery store. Good quality, healthy vegetation and baked goods…. all around. I encourage you to look at harvesting seeds that are not GM seeds (genetically modified) and see if you can taste the difference, or feel the difference.
I am not saying start eating more wheat, but do look at the source and country of origin of your flours, ask at your bulk stores, for a organic choice, keep the wheat belly down, by making different grain choices such as heritage grains of: quinoa, buckwheat and oats. Here is a link to a myriad of grains for your well being.
Of course if you have allergies to any grain, then check out which ones work for you.
Good advice for those planting seeds, choose quality over quantity, after harvest time, store the seeds in paper envelopes, I find that they keep quite well that way.
