First of all let me say I am not an experienced gardener I had to learn from scratch. I’m still learning. Along the way I’ve had successes and failures. This website is about sharing what I’ve learned and my experiences in gardening.
Over the years our food has lost a lot of the nutrients that we need to support good health.
Concern over the loss of nutrients in our food was evident as far back as 1936 when a study was published in this US Senate Document. Fast forward to today and the food we consume has a serious loss of nutrition.
After reading that document and watching a movie called The Gerson Miracle (See Below) I was highly motivated to start gardening. The Gerson Miracle is the story of Dr Gerson’s discovery. In 1928 he was curing several chronic, degenerative diseases by juicing organic vegetables for his patients. It made a lot of sense to me. So I set out on a mission to start juicing and learn how to grow more of my own food.
My first stop was over to Amazon for a slow speed juicer. Since I was on a budget my decision was to go for the Breville BJS600XL Fountain Crush Masticating Slow Juicer. The Breville is the image on the left.
In retrospect I think I would rather have got the Omega VRT350 Heavy Duty Dual-Stage Vertical Single Auger Low Speed Juicer. It’s over $100 more but I think it’s a better product. In any event the Breville works adequately and does get the job done for now.
What you”ll find here on the website is the result of many hours researching gardening topics on the net, learning what others have done and implementing my version of it.
Here in Florida where I am, we are very fortunate to have two growing seasons. One starting early in March and a second season starting around September. The Summer is just too hot here for most vegetables.
With two growing season I get a another chance to try something new. Well that’s my story and I’m sticking to it.
