In my experience of growing my own food, there are 5 primary steps that I’ve found to be the most important. They may be obvious steps to some, yet notice the simple upgrades I’ve made to each. I want to share these with you because I’ve found that growing some of my own food, having an edible garden, and going above standards options for gardening by using amendments as discussed below, has been the best health decision I’ve EVER made.
Growing your own food is just 1 of 30+ concepts and strategies that I will be sharing in my upcoming book (details yet to be released) – and even though every single one I write about is a power-packed high value recommendation, it’s really hard to top getting your hands in the dirt, loving your little plants, and picking the food yourself.
Previously, before my gardening days, I use to be under the impression that there was a lot to learn to embark on such a venture, and that I wanted to make sure I had things “right” before I got started. I postponed diving in the way I should have because I didn’t know how, I had no idea where to start, and it seemed easier to just hire someone for this novel idea even though I never did. I recognize that even though there is a place for all these doubts and thoughts as it’s natural human behavior to have this stuff come up, it most definitely should not hold us back. Just release the fear, uncertainty, concern – or whatever emotions or excuses you have about this, read my easy 5 steps, and start this year, this season.
2) Create mounds of soil and infuse with kelp, rock dust and 92 ocean minerals (or build or buy raised garden beds if you prefer this)
3) Plant your seeds with positive intention and reap the countless benefits of being the one who has planted the seeds (feel the power in this?!)
4) Give your garden unconditional love… give it the 2 things it loves most: clean water (NO tap water!) and rays of bright sunshine
5) Harvest your abundance often and eat with gratitude
It’s easy to make the upgrade and garden this way instead of buying conventional (non-organic, non-heirloom varieties of seeds), throw them haphazardly into the ground, neglect the space, and avoid using the very things that make outstanding leafy greens, herbs, and plants – kelp, rock dust and 92 ocean minerals (GroPal – the ionic trace mineral solution).
You can get the kelp & rock dust on Amazon (search the brand Dr. Earth, and look up kelp meal and Azomite – Organic Trace Mineral Soil Additive Fertilizer – 67 Trace Minerals).
Re-mineralize your body by adding minerals to your soil and drop the synthetic isolated mineral supplements!
If you’re not growing your own food yet on some level, you’re just a decision away from doing so. Exciting!! 🙂 I believe it’s the most critical thing we can do to ensure a healthy future for ourselves, not to mention the plethora or emotional and physical benefits we receive from picking our own food straight out of the ground (or indoor pot) & relishing every nutritious bite.
WHAT TO GROW? My favorite garden greens to grow specifically for salads include: collards, all varieties of kale (yes, there is more than 1 variety!), mustard greens (purple leaves in picture below), arugula, mesclun salad greens, edible flowers (preserves the feminine nature in women), cilantro, and parsley.
If I can be of any help to you and you’d like a consultation or guidance along the way, please get in touch!
