Leaves

Leaves are as important as vegetables and fruits. When we think or talk about leaves, we say what kind leaves or which vegetables, fruit or even flowers it belongs.We never pay attention to leaves it self or don’t give any importance to leaves.
There are many vegetables, fruits, flowers , nuts or any kind even a weed leaves are more beneficial than their fruits, vegetables or nuts. They are more nutrients than their fruits,vegetables and nuts.
When we see any vegetable plant, fruit tree or nut tree or any kind vine or flower plant, our eyes instantly start looking for fruits, vegetables, nuts and flowers, we totally ignore their leaves.
There are so many leaves, to name a few like guava leaves, moringa leaves,bitter melon leaves, olive leaves, radish leaves, taro leaves papaya leaves, beet leaves image image image image image image image image image image image image imageand many more are highly nutritious and beneficial to our health than their fruits, vegetables and flowers.
While we talk about leaves, we can’t forget the all herbs. Their leaves are even more useful , they have medicinal properties, used in many health problems.
There many like peppermint, spearmint, basil, tulsi and many others.
There are many weed leaves also very nutritious and good for health.
This is just to name a few but there are so many more useful leaves out there we have to look for it, study them and learn about their importance to appreciate them.

Peppermints 🍃

Peppermints are a herbs from a mint family, has much stronger favor and smell than any other mints .

Peppermints mostly used for making tea, you get tired of drinking same old ginger tulsi tea 🙂 

Can be used in making  oil,  flavored drinks . Also used in toothpaste and candy.

It has many medicinal values great for digestion,tension headache, diabetes and blood pressure and many more.

In garden, rub a few peppermint leaves on arms and legs, mosquitos will stay away from the smells.

I only plant l peppermints once few years ago, now they keep coming every spring, sometimes it’s very cold in winter then will die down but comes back in spring.

I use  in a tea so also dry some for winter time .

Almost year around I have peppermints in garden.

Love it ❤️

Do plant few herbs in the garden. They are very valuable not just as a food but as a medicine and preventive medicine .

Last harvest of turmeric.

Although only few turmeric plants left to harvest, I harvested more turmeric than I expected. Before it gets too cold outside I wanted to finish working on my turmeric garden.
It took me whole day to dig, harvest and cleanup. After harvesting most of turmeric, I divided each plant in to several plants and planted back in to ground for next season. Turmeric will not grow in winter but will come back in late spring this way I don’t have to buy turmeric roots every year to plant.
I had good harvest of turmeric this season. I made turmeric pickle for year around to eat with our everyday food.
Here are some pictures of my last turmeric harvest.
Enjoy.
