Lunch for today is a fresh, locally grown, organic herb salad with pecans.
I am growing the herbs in a container on the patio.
I also added some sprouts that I grew in a jar in the kitchen. We have basil, sorrel, cilantro, lettuce, dandelion greens and more… The herbs not only taste good, but look beautiful too. Please share your comments about this video, thanks.
Locally Grown Organic Herb Salad
Top it off with some extra virgin olive oil and sea salt. Pecans provide some protein and healthy fat from the olive oil as well.

Container gardening is a great way to have some fresh herbs and vegetables growing right in your own backyard. You can also micro manage the climate, by bringing it undercover if frost threatens or moving it around to get the ideal amount of sunlight.
Container gardening is great for people in apartments and condos and folks with little or no yard. It is a great space saving gardening technique.
