    Why should we grow food for our loved ones?

    Lindsay Sheehan brings it down to the point: “Store-bought produce isn’t as nutritious as it used to be. Showing a steady decline since the 1950s, modern farming practices have valued the size, yield, growth rate, and pest resistance of fruits and vegetables over and above basic nutrition. You would need to eat eight oranges today to obtain the same amount of vitamin A as a single orange would have provided just two generations ago.

    The main causes of nutrient loss are growing foods in soil that is depleted in nutrients, cultivating fast-growing varieties that are harvested before maturity, as well as the “dilution effect” – a phenomenon where the larger the fruit and the more produce the plant itself yields, the less protein, amino acids, minerals, and vitamins are available in the harvested food. Sadly, the average vegetable purchased in the supermarket today contains anywhere from 5% to 40% less nutrition.

    When we grow our food, however, we have much more control over the process. We can enrich the soil with organic matter, we can harvest food when it reaches peak maturity, and we can choose to grow cultivars that give us the most nutritional bang for our buck.”

  • Free Delivery in Cape Town. No reassembly required! Six Good Reasons To Grow Your Fruit, Herbs And Vegetables:
    1. YOU KNOW WHAT YOU EAT
    When you eat vegetables grown by yourself, you know what ends up in your body. So you can be sure that no chemicals have contaminated the plants, and you can even witness and experience the growth process of your food. So you live much healthier and eat more consciously, this will have a positive effect on your health and your mind.
    1. YOU EAT ORGANIC FOR CHEAP
    The only downside of organic vegetables is the price. If you grow at home, you can choose natural fertilisers and avoid chemicals and preservatives. You eat fresh and tasty and that for the small amount of a single purchase of the plant.
    1. YOU GET A FEELING OF RESPONSIBILITY AND SECURITY
    Few things in life give you such a good sense of responsibility and security, like growing your food. You have the power, the responsibility for a living being, and you will have a feeling of absolute peace. Also, you save a lot of money and get herbs, fruits and vegetables in the best quality!
    1. YOU SPEND TIME OUTSIDE
    Caring for your herb garden is genuinely balm for the soul! You get your head free while pottering and digging, forget the daily worries and the stress of everyday life or the job. You automatically get a better and more conscious relationship with your food.
    1. YOU CONSUME LOCAL FOOD
    The transport of food over long distances (aircraft, trucks) not only increases the price in the market but also considerably deteriorates the quality of food. By home growing and cultivating, you avoid this degradation and get the most out of your diet! All nutrients are preserved; it could not be fresher!
    1. YOU WILL BE SOCIAL ACTIVE & DO GOOD FOR THE ENVIRONMENT
    When you start growing your vegetables, it can quickly happen that you have grown and harvested too much, and now there is an abundance. For example, you could delight your neighbours, work colleagues or friends by giving the harvest to them or by cooking something delicious for everyone. As a result, several people benefit from it, set an example for the environment and eat better!

  • Buy two Balcony Tomato Boxes and get FREE shipping. No assembly required. There is nothing like the taste of a freshly picked tomato, warm from the sunshine. In the smallest of gardens or even a flat with a window-box, it is worth growing at least one tomato plant. Tomato Facts: There are over 10,000 varieties of tomato, from small cherry ones to Ponderosa, which can weigh in at 1.5 kg and more. Tomatoes come in a range of colours including pink, purple, black, yellow and white. With an annual production of 60 million tons, they remain the world’s most demanded and most popular fruit. The second spot goes to bananas and third to apples. The Tomato and you: Tomato has potent medicinal properties. It can lower the risk of cancer, prevents cardiovascular diseases, purifies cigarette smoke carcinogens, is full of minerals and vitamins, lowers hypertension, regulates blood levels, dissolves gallstones, reduces the severity of blood clots, treats inflammation, and more. Tomatoes are the richest source of lycopene, an antioxidant that is not only good for the heart and effective against certain cancers but also important for the health of the prostate gland in men. Cooked tomatoes are better for you than raw ones, as more beneficial chemicals are released. Tomatoes are also packed with vitamins A and C, calcium and potassium.  Did you know? Sometimes tomatoes are picked green and dosed with ethylene gassed on their way to the supermarket. This way, when they arrive, they are ripe. Refrigeration decreases the flavour and quality of tomatoes. Tomatoes can keep longer if you store them with their stem down. How to plant? Put the seedling in a deep hole, up to the top set of leaves. The covered stems will put out other roots, and you will have a stronger, healthier plant. Tomatoes need feeding. Use some long-term fertiliser pellets or regularly feed when you water. Feeding also improves the flavour of the fruit Tomatoes grow well beside Carrot, Celery, Chives, Parsley, Marigold and Basil. Avoid growing close to Rosemary, Potatoes and Fennel. What soil is best? Tomatoes will grow in almost all soil types except heavy clay. The soil should be relatively loose and well drained. Tomatoes don’t do well in dry soil but avoid planting them in excessively wet, waterlogged soil. An ideal potting mix for tomatoes consists of equal parts potting soil, perlite, sphagnum peat moss and compost.
