Basil-Vanilla Filled Fig Moon Pie
Anyway, moving on to Green Week...
Earth Day is right around the corner (actually it's 2 days away!). How are you celebrating?
I'm eating my veggies...
I've got my roasted onion, diakon, and red bell peppers with scrambled eggs
Sided with savory roasted brussel sprouts (cayenne, salt, pepper) and sweet roasted brussel sprouts (maple syrup and salt)
And a dollop of Umeboshi Plum Paste (<--- GOOD stuff)
How about some fresh basil, tomatoes, and olives on a sprouted wheat tortilla?
I think that's eating pretty close to Mother Earth...
Oh, and topped with salad!
And Gabi is still at it as well...
Walking to the gym to green her lungs, legs, and environment.
She also jumped on the green smoothie bandwagon!
Her spinach, peaches, banana, orange juice, yogurt smoothie
Enjoying it in the sun.
One of the best ways to help out the environment, your health, and your wallet, is to plant a garden. But some people are not so lucky to have space outdoors to do so. Here are some tips to get your indoor garden up and running (or sprouting). (source)
Location, location, location: Select a spot inside your home that gets at least four hours of sunlight a day. Florescent lights or metal halide grow lamps may be a good alternative, if no natural sunlight is available.
Choose Containers: Wood, clay, or ceramic containers work well for countertop gardening. Be sure to choose containers with proper drainage and consider sizes. Small rows of pots work well for multiple herbs, and larger pots for vegetables. Avoid overcrowding the seedlings and plants.
Pick Your Plants: Basil, parsley, oregano, sage, thyme, and rosemary are the easiest herbs for indoor growth. Spinach, leaf lettuces, endive, cherry tomatoes, and peppers make for great indoor vegetable plants.
Add Some Soil: Depending on what you decided to grow, starting from seeds, seedlings, or cuttings is up to you. Each container, though, should have a sufficient amount (four parts) of potting soil, mixed with one part organic fertilizer or compost. Be sure to read the seed packet instructions for depth, light, and water required for each plant.
Hope everyone plants at least one veggie, herb, flower, or even tree, this Earth Day... why not, right?
