A Mecca for Brassicas.

Eating for your zone?

I know you must be getting sick of the gardening analogies by now, but I can’t help but see the correlation between eating what works for your body (to be healthy) and growing what works for your Growing Zone.

You see I want tomatoes, peppers, and pole beans.  All the stuff we could grow back on my parent’s Hobby Farm in Ontario.  The challenge of course is that I now live in a zone 2 through 4 which is Mecca for Brassicas (the cabbage family) who adore the cold.  Repeatedly I have been warned that without a Green House it is a fool’s errand to plant tomatoes in the ground out here…which is why I’ve hung mine up.

Yup I bought one of those ‘Upside Down’ Planters so if frost threatens I’m taking my babies indoors for the night. Aside from the occasional stubborn streak I am quite reasonable….when I’m not being resourceful and a little rebellious ?

I think it can be said that extends to my Cleanse as well.  After all as I am now in the second and soon to be third phase of my cleanse I have
‘expanded’ my palette to include occasional things like Caffeine, Vodka, Cranberry Juice and Nuts.  I understand there is no going back to the way things were unless I want all the nonsense that accompanies it (and I don’t).   Happily indulging a little helps me stay on track a lot….so if I have a minor rebellious streak I think it’s ok. ?
