Harvest today – made green smoothies!

  • Today I harvested broccoli, swiss chard, green beans, lettuce, and kale. I made green smoothies for me and the kids. I love to drink these smoothies for breakfast. Some of the benefits of drinking green smoothies is that I don’t want to eat junk food, have more energy and my skin is healthier. I first got started drinking green smoothies when my sister invited me to hear The Green Smoothie Girl speak at an event. After getting hooked on them and buying greens everyday, I was inspired to start my garden. I wasn’t always a gardener, but have found lots of success this past year in large part to my new garden design. I never have to pull a weed; that aspect and other benefits of my design has really helped me keep my garden going for a full year. For the full story about how I came to design my garden, read about it here. Check out The Green Smoothie Girl and if she is traveling in your area I would recommend attending one of her events. Look around my website to see what else I grow, and if you have struggled with gardening in the past, maybe my new way of gardening will be as easy for you as it has been for me.

    Here’s a picture of them growing a few weeks ago. I love my garden and growing my own greens. Nothing beats fresh food from my garden.
