Have you ever wandered through a grocery produce section and wondered how some of the more exotic fruits and vegetables are grown and how they should be prepared? I recently roamed the aisles of a local grocery that caters to our city's growing international transplants. I had never seen so many root vegetables that were unknown to me. My husband wasn't along and therefore could not be embarrassed by his wife, so I asked permission to photograph some of the produce with my phone. The produce manager smiled and said, "People do it all the time."

As I type this I am looking at:
in my west window of my den area. All grown from stuff I bought at the store. In the basement under lights is Ginger.
I couldn't find any in the grocery store here, so I ordered a Tumeric root on Ebay.
Just love growing from the Produce section. I have a list of another 10 or so items that I cannot find in my smaller city.
And for those truly hooked get a copy of the book "The After-Dinner Gardening Book" from Amazon.

|I'm impressed! I have a mango tree that is covered in white scale...again. It's out in the cold because I don't want it to share bugs with my other plants. I did swab the bugs with alcohol, but I think there's still some live ones. I bought some Neem oil and plan to spray it and another potted tree after Christmas. We're still in the 60°s and 70°s here, so the creepy things are still crawling around!|
