Market Edition: Offerings from Mother Earth


Offerings from the farmers today: blueberries, blackberries, strawberries, orchid, mint, thyme, arugula, bok choy, water spinach, kale, halibut, ahi tuna, garlic, parsley.

There was a community garden representative there sharing gardening tips, experiences, plants and seeds!  They gave me a complimentary start-up mixed lettuce plant, and helped me choose three kinds of seeds: Giant Sunflowers Heirloom Titan, Rainbow Chard Neon Glow, and Bush French Filet Beans Rolande!  When I showed my start up plants to the farmer I was buying fresh produce from, he held my plant like a baby and said, “oh, this one will grow up to be like this kale; and this one, is going to be this kind of spinach; and this is a mesclun.”

Whoa!  As a physician, humans typically flourish under my care; but rarely plants.  In honor of this upcoming Earth Day, I suppose it’s about time for me learn how to take care of plants too!
