Yummy Foods to Grow
Well, we are so excited to share our delightful finds with you, and can’t wait to have you try them for yourselves! Since this is beautiful Spring, the season of new beginnings and rebirth, let’s start with our Garden of Delights!
I want you to start taking responsibility for yourselves by growing as much of your own food as you can, and trying to eat as organic or wildcrafted as possible, always knowing and trusting your sources.
Although not by nature very pessimistic, I am afraid I do believe that big farming, big agriculture and so on, does not have our best interests at heart! Look at all the chemical processing, the DNA interference and farm fishing, and tell me that you think this is all for our good? Sorry, no! It’s mostly for the good of the Agri-businesses, who care more about the bottom line than for your health. So, try to control and bless the foods you choose for your needs.
Get used to the idea of Container Gardening. You can grow so many things in containers, just moving up to bigger and bigger containers when needed, so you don’t ever have to have the excuse of not having enough land space to grow things! I grew some beautiful white and pale lavender eggplants, potatoes, and peppers right out of containers, and the taste was truly remarkable. There is something very magical about “from seed to table”!
Everybody knows you can grow tomatoes, beans and some cucumbers out of containers, but let’s think outside the box! Let’s grow tea, coffee, vanilla orchid, lemons, potatoes, cacao and other goodies out of containers!
Delightful! Tea Bushes in Containers!
I have personally grown some of these out of containers, and the excitement this generates, almost cannot be measured. For example, tea when it reaches a certain maturity, produces the most exquisite, creamy colored flowers you’ve ever seen. And then you think of the true name of tea, Camellia Sinensis, and D’uh! it makes sense! The name Camille or Camellia, has always been associated with the winsome creaminess of The Lady of the Camellias!
Tea Plants in Containers
While you will never put tea plantations out of business with your container pots of tea, isn’t it nice to have your own tea bush, and certainly be the talk of many of your gatherings? Tea bushes do take a little while to come to maturity, but you can certainly pick some of the new leaves to make your own green tea! You must also have a sunny spot for the container, and never grow the bushes in plastic containers!
Look at the beautiful tea bush to the right. I have found a Container Plant for you to start your own mini plantation? Or, what should we call a Container Tea Bush? a mini Contation? 🙂 Get started now, before the prices go up, or we run out!
4″ Container $22.50 plus, $7.50 p&h
Delightful! Coffee Bushes in Containers!
I was always fascinated watching the coffee beans grow, at my father’s plantation. They are beautiful, going from green to red to brown, very similar to Allspice berries, which trees are often found near coffee bushes too. Coffee also takes some time before starting to bear fruit, but is worth the wait.
I have a slightly mean story, that I absolutely cannot resist sharing (okay, the Devil made me do it)! This story proves the point that visitors to foreign countries should try to be respectful enough to listen to the locals if they are trying to tell them something!
We have a lot of goats that wander around our island, and mature coffee beans look very much like goat pellets, we know that, so we never mistake them for coffee beans! However, some friends saw tourists, in the coffee plantation, about to pick up these goat pellets, and hastened very excitedly over to tell them not to do that! For some reason, these tourists were very offended to be approached so excitedly by the locals and they turned their backs and continued to pick them up! So, my friends shrugged and left them to it! 🙁
To this day, I wonder what their reaction was when they tried to grind and brew those goat pellets for coffee!
Anyway, back to the delightful coffee bushes in containers that we have for sale here. These are Arabica beans, the progenitor of this whole revolution, which had its beginnings in Ethiopia! Follow the growing directions for this plant, and you can’t go wrong!
2.5″ Container $15.00, plus $5.20 p&H
So, these are some of the plants I am going to be introducing you to today! Come back next week to meet some other delightful container plants!

Other Yummy Foods to Savor!
If you’re like me, health conscious and wanting to eat the best foods possible, you probably like and appreciate fish! Well, as you know there is great concern over mercury pollution in some ocean fish, and all kinds of disgusting things residing in farm raised fish, you have probably cut back on your fish consumption!
Well, I love the taste of fish too much to ever cut it out of my life, and like everything else I eat I bless it and pre-treat it with bacteria and other microorganism killing lemon and spices before cooking and enjoying it. Nothing like an Escovitched Red Snapper, done the Jamaican way, along with onions, scallions, peppercorns and red wine vinegar!
I am also very, very fond of Salmon, Halibut and Cod among others! Well, do I have a treat for you: I would like to introduce to this line of mouthwatering, fresh caught Alaskan Salmon, Wild Halibut and Cod! Omg, is this wonderful, and direct from the processor! I could live on this stuff. You can order the fish already cooked, smoked for example. or you can buy the fresh fillets and cook it yourself! Delivered from catch straight to your door, it doesn’t get any better than this!!!
Fish Tales of Yore
I remember when I was growing up in Jamaica, on Sundays, a group of us would go for brunch at our favorite special beach, Hellshire (turns out it was the favorite beach for many, many locals in the know too :)) just for the fish caught by the fishermen nearby, and brought in to be cooked by the market women with their skillets on hot coals! Nothing beat the taste of that fresh caught fish, and it is a memory I will always treasure.
But I tell you, eating fresh caught Alaskan Salmon, Halibut and Cod comes a close second.
I don’t know if I can go back to “ordinary supermarket fish” after this. In fact, I am making my salmon Thai style, with ginger, scallions, lemongrass and soy sauce! I am serving it with Jasmine rice, fresh green beans, carrots and radicchio, and maybe for dessert, we’ll have Chocolate Souffle with Orange sauce. Want to join me?
