learn to sprout seeds on your windowsill, very nutritious and fresh but you need to rinse the x2 daily only takes seconds
Another interetesting site, im gonna compile all the useful ones posted to the 'worthwhile linkage' page so they're easy to browse :)
Two things I love to eat are purselane ( http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Portulaca_oleracea ) which is SUPER good for you (and has pretty flowers - people traditionally buy them as flowering succulants) and I absolutely love what most consider a weed, Lambs Quarter (wild spinach) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mLb-sFOt6zc - both of these self-seed, to the point that you actually need to control them - very hard to kill these as they will grow wild and are super yummy / good for you. Also, growing garlic and ginger (which should be used every day for simple health reasons, are simple to grow - just grab some at the store, plant it and voila you've got your own crop in no time at all.
I was recently educated about Quinoa and Amaranth (good to grow together) - super healthy, easy to grow (get seeds in the grain bins at any health food store). The biggie back story is this, apparently because of the voracious demand in the West for Quinoa grain, the native people who harvest the grain 'for us to buy in our fancy stores', can't even afford to buy the grain in their native lands - crazy!!! I was told yesterday that the key is to start growing it HERE and to teach people that the plant itself (which is nearly identical to lambsquarter/wild spinach) is edible beyond the grain itself - thereby reducing the demand for foreign Quinoa harvests, undue inflated prices, etc. so hopefully the natives can again afford to get the grain themselves. So this push to grow / harvest here, could really possibly help not only us but the natives who introduced us to it.
that sounds cool ksainz can you post some linkage n info, since you know more you can show us the better sites :):)
another good windowfarms vid :)
