I'm home again in Canada after a weekend away at my friend @thefarmatoxford 's gorgeous farm. My husband @mysticwoodcarving kept all of my little seedlings alive, he and my brother-in-law cleaned the entire house while I was away, and made dinner for us all tonight. So, basically I feel like I've won the lottery. An amazing weekend away with a flower friend, and my sweet family looking after the home front. I'm curled up on the couch with my Newfoundland dog (who may have missed me most) thinking about all of the incredible people flower farming has brought into my life. I have so much to be grateful for.

At first, when I started gardening I was reluctant to eating my produce, thinking of it like unhealthy dirty food, that something like food couldn't be grown so easily by myself. I belived that store bought veggies were more nutritious even though I knew that the taste was way better when picked right of the ground. Year after year I learned a lot about nutrition and about the beneficial life in the soil, all those vitamines, minerals and even bacteria I'm putting in my body, I know they are great for my health. Now I'm wanting to be eating just food that's grown only by me or food grown in healthy environment full of life. Every day I'm finding it more pleasant eating all kind of fruit, roots, flowers, greens and weeds pulled right out of the plant, I feeling that I'm eating living food!

Pretty posies 💚

Hydroponics refers to a technique of growing plants with no soil. Instead, the nutrients and minerals necessary for their growth are dissolved in water and the roots of the plants are exposed to this solution. This is a technique currently being used by private owners and businesses across the world to grow a variety of produce, from leafy greens like lettuce to herbs, strawberries and mushrooms.

Using this technology, farmers grow acres worth of produce in a fraction of the space. In fact, a single 40 ft container fitted with hydroponic equipment can produce up to 3000 heads of lettuce a month! Additionally, farming inside an artificial and insulated unit protects the plants from seasonal changes and adverse weather, which means that this harvest can be repeated 12 months a year - 36,000 heads of lettuce, for those counting. And since the container is sealed, there is no need to spray the plants with poisonous pesticides, which leads to healthier food. (Continued)
