Does the winter have you missing the surrounding greenery or have you itching to get back into the garden and producing your own food again? A great solution is growing your own microgreens! They can be grown very easily indoors and are a great way to get home grown, dense nutrition. ~
~
All you’ll need is some sprouting seed, a quart sized mason jar, and a mesh lid to get started. Soak your seeds overnight, then rinse every day until you have little plant friends filling the jar. Eat, and enjoy! Many seeds are great for sprouting like clover, broccoli, radish, kale, onion, and fenugreek. All produce different flavors and they are great on dishes like toast, sandwiches, salads, or straight out of the jar! Try it out and let us know how it goes! ~

What tips do you have for fighting the winter blues and staying healthy? ~

Hello everyone!
.
.
The Free Seed Project is back and bigger than ever! In 2018 we helped over 2,000 people across all 50 states of the USA to grow their own food. In 2019, we sent out another 3,000 free seed packs. This year we are sending free garden starter kits to 5,000 people to help them take back power from Big Ag and put that power back into the hands of our communities- by growing our own food!
.
.
We are focusing our efforts on helping people who would not otherwise get to grow their own food or who have never grown food before. We are offering these seeds to people who can’t otherwise afford or access seeds as well as groups/ people that are helping others without access to healthy home-grown food and people who have never grown food before.
.
.
If you are interested in receiving a free seed pack please go to the Free Seed Project website freeseedproject.org to read more and to submit a request for seeds (link in bio). And if you have friends and family who could benefit from this program please share this with them!

We thought we would take the time to highlight a true delight in this world: the persimmon. The persimmon fruit comes from a range of species of trees in the genus Diospyros. Some of the most common species include an Asian type- Diospyros kaki- and an American type- Diospyros virginia. If you ever have found persimmon fruit in a grocery store, it is almost definitely from the Diospyros kaki species. However both the Asian species and the American species can be grown in different growing zones in the United States.
When fully ripe, they taste like the gooeyest, sweetest date there ever was, but you have to be careful! If eaten before they are fully ripe they can be severely astringent (mouth drying). A little bit of patience to wait until the fruit is fully squishy and ripe will be rewarded with the most delicious treat!
As if these super sugary, gooey morsels of pure bliss weren’t sweet enough, we think they are even sweeter because they extend the fruit season into dead winter. That’s right! Whether it is the Asian persimmon or the American persimmon (for colder climates) the persimmon tree clings to its fruits often through January and after the tree has gone dormant, providing its lucky fruit pickers with fresh fruit even when there is snow on the ground.
We are very delighted that some of our Community Fruit Tree recipients have planted persimmons for their communities, and we encourage you to grow your own, too. Between the two varieties, persimmons can be grown all across the US. Not only that, but the American persimmon is truly an American native, so you may be lucky and happen to stumble upon one during a wintry stroll through the woods. Keep an eye out for those beautiful orange gems hanging from bare branches. Talk about the prettiest Christmas tree bearing the most wonderful gifts!

Have you ever had a persimmon? It might just be one of your favorite fruits and you just don’t know it yet!
