Now that you all have your gardens in for the season… can you identify the following plant starts?

I hope you did well; these seedlings can be pretty tough to identify when they are just a few days old.  If you were given the chance to taste these as part of the identification process you would be amazed at how much these small seedlings called microgreens reflect the flavor of their adult counterparts.

The School of Natural Healing. Right here in my town is his little shop called Dr. Christopher’s Herb Shop where you can pick up just about any type of medicinal herb in almost any form.

I had my fourth child (in 6 years) this October. After great recovery time and rest I have found myself really wanting to see if at 33 I could ever be an athlete again. 2015 is my year to find out.

We are extremely excited about this new line of all natural, ready-to-eat plant based vegan cereals – Rokit Fuel.

This would be a lot to take on...
