One thing that has been heavy on my mind lately is growing food. After all, this is the south and it was once and still is a major agriculture hub. Therefore, I’m considering growing food. No, I’m not thinking about buying a plot of land and growing food in that way. However, I thought it would be a neat idea to start small. I am thinking about growing an herb garden and maybe a few vegetables that can be grown indoors.
I love to cook, especially in the fall and winter. I love soups, stews, chilies, and such. Most importantly, I love the taste of fresh vegetables and herbs in my dishes. Nothing beats fresh food! Let me tell you about two experiences that made me fall in love with fresh foods. My friend’s grandfather used to own an orange tree in Florida and he brought some back. I tasted it and the orange was so juicy and delicious that I can’t even eat store bought oranges any more. Another thing that I ate that was fresh wasn’t vegetables, rather it was seafood. I went to Savannah once and if you’ve been there, you know that they have awesome seafood! It was so tasty that my toes curled. I thought to myself, “This is what not previously frozen, wild caught seafood tastes like!”
So, needless to say, I’m a huge fan of fresh foods. But I want to try my hand at growing them indoors this fall and winter myself. This is why I decided to team up with affiliate partner Teraganix. They sell nutrient-rich, organic fertilizer for you to grow foods. They also sell a microbial inoculant that can help improve your fertilizer for even healthier plants. If you’ve relocated to the south like me and you really want to embrace your newfound southern roots, then planting food will be a great way to really feel like you are a true southerner.
