Found some wild goosberries.

Amla acts as a diuretic agent, thereby enhancing food absorption, balancing stomach acids, fortifying the liver, and nourishing the brain and mental functioning. It also strengthens the lungs, enhances fertility, helps the urinary system, improves skin quality, and promotes healthier hair. This fruit acts as a body coolant, flushes out toxins, increases vitality, aids in vision care, and improves muscle tone.

What is Indian Gooseberry (Amla)? Indian gooseberry or amla (Emblicaofficinalis or Phyllanthus emblica)is an extremely sour, nutritious fruit of a tree which grows in India, the Middle East, and a few other Southeast Asian countries. It is known as Amla in India and Amalaki in Sanskrit. Due to its powerful antioxidant properties, it is often used as in Ayurvedic medicines to boost skin and hair health, and also overall immunity of the body. It belongs to the Euphorbiaceae family.  This fruit ripens in the autumn in wet forests and hilly areas of the Indian subcontinent and the tree is considered sacred in India.

The fruit is light green in color and can be quite tart and fibrous to eat. In India, it is eaten with salt and chilly powder or made into a pickle or sugared candy. Amla tea and dried amla are also consumed by many for its powerful nutritional benefits.

Colocasia is a genus[of flowering plants in the family Araceae, native to southeastern Asia and the Indian subcontinent.
Some species are widely cultivated and naturalized in other tropical and subtropical regions.

Common names include tarul, karkala ko ganu, elephant-ear, taro, cocoyam, dasheen, chembu, chamadhumpa/chamagadda in Telugu, shavige gadde, and eddoe.

Parts of these plants are edible, but with very important differences. Many Colocasia varieties are grown for their edible tubers, called taro. Taro is an important food crop in Hawaii, where Colocasia is widely cultivated. However, most varieties of Alocasia are not edible. Some are highly poisonous and eating them could be fatal.
A few Alocasia varieties have edible stems, as opposed to the edible tubers of Colocasia. The stems of these select varieties must be specially prepared to avoid gastrointestinal upset. As the edible Alocasia varieties are grown mostly by agricultural concerns, it is likely that most nursery plants are non-edible varieties.

We are introducing a new range which are - "city grown" in urban farms. This is a first plant in that category.

Beetroot is a holding vegetable . You can keep it in the ground despite any season if the soil is prepared right .

We however decided to extend shelf life beyond the usual. By making a Kanji.

The Kanji is made with crushed pepper and mustard with beets ( we avoided carrots as we had none left to harvest this week) ,some coarse sea salt from @consciousfoodindia.The beets are sweet which allows fermentation from its sugars .
Keeping the babies in the ⛅

Kanji is a probiotic .It also acidifies the stomach if it's too basic and acts as a base if it too acidic- the beets can be used further for pickling.

Came back home late and thought of reaching for the phone to order food .
Then changed the mind to make 10% effort than the 0% thought earlier.

Took the leaves. Tore them by hand. There was pomogranate, broke and dropped some. Beets I always keep boiled if not finished in the over for 8 mins.The corn was sitting in a container . Threw some in there as well.

Chopped some onions and sliced some tomatoes.
All this took 9 mins.

Mixed everything with salt pepper balsamic and my personal favourite - mustard oil.

Salad ready . Felt light before sleeping .All items were present at home - 15 mins to change my mind from feeling great cooking than being a lazy bum
I will repeat this 2 times in a week atleast as the balsamic mustard and sweet beetroot plus pomo - zingy fun.

Our organic banana has lost the fight with - 🍌 for being more yellow .They are just GREEN. You are conditioned to link bright yellow with good bananas ?

Bananas, like other fruits, produce ethylene gas, which is needed to ripen them. ... “Putting more ethylene [with the banana] isn't going to make it turn yellow, but it will speed up the ripening process,

Organic banana is 30 yellowing . 70 green.

Delivering Tuesdays and Fridays if you inform us a day in prior.
