Having struggled with overweight for most of my life (it started when I was 11 and I am now 50), my quest for a diet that best fits me led me to the Weston A. Price Foundation. Their view on traditional cooking fits mine wonderfully and I have since then made a change of course which I haven’t regretted.
Automatically – when becoming conscious about food – one starts to find a way of getting the best food possible – think global – buy local – or better yet – plant local.
Which is what I started doing a year and a half ago. I bought a few bulbs of garlic and planted them, not expecting much.
I soon realised that just garlic wasn’t enough and I started buying whatever containers I could find to stash in my backyard.
I don’t have a garden; not really. That piece of space at the back of my house cannot truly be considered a garden. However, i did succeed in planting garlic, strawberries, chillies, tomatoes, beans and peas and a few other things.
Last year was a moderate success, but I know I want to continue this, and I want to become better.
I have applied for a community garden and hope that I get one before spring starts, so that I can start to do some really serious gardening. Taking care of plants, growing my own food, enjoying nature, has been a dream of mine since childhood.
