Went out for a walk today, and I could not believe how much everything has grown… All it takes is a few days with rain and then a few days with glorious sunshine and, Voila! Even our windowsill tomatoes and peppers has had a growth spurt, and they are sitting on the inside?

As you know I have been dreaming for a while now, of having my own piece of land. And to see this sudden burst of edible things out in nature just fuels this desire… Do you think it’s a natural instinct? To be able to provide for oneself and ones family?

Our window sill garden is growing…and there is so much ¬†more I would like to add. But the next seeds are going to be Rocket, can’t wait to eat my “own” rocket. If you are not a rocket fan, try rocket on pizza or pasta. It tastes so good! I love it with most things at the moment. Why not try a cheese and ham sandwich with rocket… Staple lunch in this house. As a matter of fact, had it today.

Rocket has as many other salad greens high vitamin A and C content and it has a very positive effect on liver function. Which could prove useful for detoxing. ¬†Apart from the above it’s also packed with other nutrients like; iron, calcium, folic acid and vitamin B.

Let me know what you think about Rocket, as I know this is one of these “love or hate” foods.
