Herbs in the Kitchen

Super Rich.. Herbs
Herb gardens are not only a good entry point for new gardeners, but they are also an easy way to bring more nutrient density and diversity back to your plate. One of the reasons I’ve made a garden a priority in our family is because after food is picked it looses more and more of it’s nutrient content.
For example, food at the grocery store takes around 5-7 days to get there. Spinach (an item prized for its high vitamin and mineral content) looses around 90% of its vitamin C content within 24 hours of harvest, and 50 percent of its folate and carotenoids within a week as found by a study done at Penn State.
I won’t get to in the weeds on this topic right now, but the foods we are eating are already compromised by the soil they are grown in. When you add on top of that long transit times for food to get to you, you’re getting a very degraded version of the fruit or veggie you were hoping for.
I know gardening can be daunting but even if you can grow small things like herbs, your vastly improving your nutrition.

Cam Style Spotlight

Wetland Necklace
The pendant was originally designed from hand formed clay,
then we casted in recycled sterling silver.
We love the melted shape of this pendant, it was organically
made by an open flame.
This beloved pendant inspired us to make a badass signet
ring for our next collection.
