Leafy Greens: Did you know?
Dark leafy greens are high in magnesium, an important nutrient often missing in our diets. This mineral is responsible for many chemical functions in your body and deficiencies can results in a variety of health problems.
Add a few spinach or kale leaves to smoothies, lightly steam leafy greens with your meals or enjoy raw in salads.

“Gardens speak of paradise, of freedom, of being yourself. Gardens say, slow down, look around you. Believe, hope, blow away those cranky thoughts. Gardens talk – if you are willing to listen, and remain quiet only – awed by the greatness of the music of your soul.” – Zoraida Rivera Morales

So loved your video, 5 Tips….., espousing the virtues of succession gardening.
Even as a Master Gardener i need to be reminded of the basics and encouraged to strive for the most bountiful sustained harvest! I am so excited to have found your site and have suggested your site to so many people even before the jan newsletter came out! i have never grown micro-greens before and with looming health challenges for my family i am so hopeful that healthier, power packed micro greens will be a path to better over-all health.
I started your site for the micro-green info but the site is so beautifully done and overflowing with many different subjects that i know i will be accessing it daily to see what is added and waiting anxiously for the next month’s enewsletter. I feel like i just found TREASURE!!!
thank you for what must be a huge endeavor. Your passion is a great support to people and our planet.
Wow! Thank you SO much for your encouraging feedback. Reading a comment like yours are MY ‘WHY’ – why I get up in the morning and work hard to share my passion and what I’ve learned with others. I want to make a small difference in the world. Help people help themselves to live a healthier, more sustainable life. Changing little things can make a BIG difference to our health and wellbeing.
I am so grateful for this opportunity and look forward to connecting with you as part of this online community of gardeners who share a love for what we do and grow.
Thanks again Tammy. You’ve made my day.
Warm regards Anne 🙂
I have had some very useful information from your site, Your “How To” videos are a lovely idea and are a big inspiration to me. Keep doing what your doing, its great.
Thanks Cathy – really appreciate your feedback! Great to hear you enjoyed the first ‘How To’ video – more to come in this series of tips. Happy gardening, Anne
I really enjoyed your video and it has encouraged me to keep going in my garden even though I thought it was too hot to try and grow stuff.
Thanks so much for your feedback on the video. Glad it inspired you to get growing. Microclimates can make the world of difference – a little shade protection over summer + heat tolerant lettuce varieties are the way to grow. Keep me posted with your results!
Videos are a great addition to your web site.. love the lettuce one!
Thanks for the feedback Narelle – more ‘How To’ videos to come with quick tips. If you have suggestions for particular topics, let me know! Cheers Anne
