My Victory garden of healthy Vegetables
If you want organic vegetables, you need to start with organic seeds in organic soil with organic fertilizer. I plan to start with organic vegetables whenever possible, but home-grown non-organic will be better than most chemically grown and sprayed store bought. My goal is two-fold - to save money and to eat healthy vegetables.
Most visible in the photo above are melon and cucumber vines. The tall plant on the right is zucchini. In the background are beans, peppers and a tomato plant. An economical way to get seeds is to salvage them from healthy vegetables and fruit you've eaten. After all you know the parent was tasty, so the offspring have a better than average chance to taste good! That's how we started our melon and pepper plants.
Candida Diet Center is all about gaining victory over fungus. So I planted a Victory Garden. What better way to be sure of healthy vegetables than to plant them yourself. And healthy vegetables are the foundation for any healthy diet and especially a candida diet.
I was greedy. I hated to throw out good seedlings, so when I thinned out the garden vegetables, I put some in pots on our lanai (screened enclosure). I also bought sweet potato plants yesterday because they are a healthy vegetable we really enjoy and I read they are easy to grow. I'm looking for lettuce seedlings. My lettuce seeds didn't germinate.
It's an interesting experiment to see whether the potted plants protected by the screens do better or the actual Victory Garden in the back yard.
We've got blossoms which is encouraging. I'll update you when our healthy vegetables show up. Of course the real proof of whether I've grown a healthy diet from my Victory Garden (or simply a lot of work!) will be in the eating.
Tune in to the Candida Diet Center for more on living a healthy diet.
History Lesson: Victory Gardens were a popular means of providing for the family during the years of rationing in World War 2.
