Autumn Up date of Allotments ~ Grow your Own.

The weather here in the UK has taken a turn for the worse as Autumn is making her presence known. Last week we were basking in glorious Sun of temperatures in the 20’C  and this week its plummeted to average of around 14’C  going even colder at night.. So the jumpers are back on and the stew pot of veggies have been on the menu.   The weather really turned for the worse for those living just a few miles down the road from us.. As a Mini Twister tore roofs off homes in the Derbyshire town of Alfreton.  To see pictures of the damage caused the link is here....     These types of ‘Twisters’ are unusual in the UK..  We have been busy getting the allotments sorted and storing and freezing.. So lots have kept us busy. Below is a picture update..

At the Back of the shed the old rubbish heap is going to be levelled. This is where we intend to grow our Butternut squash next year. As the allotment next to us just put his squash on old soil and left them.. They were 3 sizes bigger than ours.. So here they will have room to spread out to their hearts content :-)

Friday Facts~ What a Load of Old Cabbage.~ GM Crops approved by UK!!!

Cabbages and long view of Alloments

Cabbage is one of the oldest vegetables in existence and continues to be a dietary staple throughout the world. It has been cultivated in the West for over 4000 yrs and many think it to be one of the greatest healers of the vegetable Kingdom.

Dr Valnet a French Natural Doctor cites many cases in which the application of slightly crushed cabbage leaves to gangrenous wounds brought healing. This was found especially in the second world war where application to wounds in some instances avoided the need for surgery or amputation.

Cabbage cools the digestive system and is also effective for indigestion, acidity, burning, inflammation as in gastritis and ulcers. The ability of Cabbage to heal digestive ulcers has been known for centuries. In 1557 a Dutchman Dr Dodens wrote-“ The Juice of cabbage sooths the abdomen and relieves constipation, cleans and heals old ulcers both internal and external. Mixed with honey, makes a syrup that cures hoarseness and cough”

Cabbage is high in fibre, vitamin C & K, and naturally fat free and cholesterol free.

Cabbage is a nutritional powerhouse that is an excellent source of manganese vitamin B6, riboflavin, calcium, potassium, vitamin A, tryptophan, protein and magnesium.

Different varieties of cabbages have varying nutritional strength: purple cabbage has more vitamin C, while the savoy has more vitamin A, calcium, iron and potassium. Cabbages are an excellent source of fibre and vitamin K, and a good source of vitamin C, calcium, potassium, and magnesium.

Why all these facts about this well known Food? Well in the News right now is the headlines that the UK Government is promoting Genetically Modified Crops… click the blue links for information.. Please educate yourselves.. 

I am against GM crops, we are told its to feed the world.. But the World is still starving while those who are behind the GM crops grow ever fatter.. Not to mention what effects the GM crops have on our Bees.  I hope that you too will look into the REAL effects and tactics of those behind the Genetically Modified crops and see how many Farmers have been ruined, and how more and more chemicals are being produced that are used in conjunction with these crops.

We are told that “  The introduction of GM crops in the last 25 years has not resulted in improved food security in most of the countries that have adopted them. In most cases there has been little or no change but in others the situation has clearly worsened.” 

So what is behind GM Crops? and why are we pushing to interfere yet again in what Nature has managed on her own for Thousands of Years?

What do you think about GM crops?

Just spend 7 minutes educating yourself.

Each of us, carries within us the capacity to change the world in small ways for better or worse. Everything we do and think affects the people in our lives, and their reactions in turn affect others As the effect of a seemingly insignificant word passes from person to person, its impact grows and can become a source of great joy, inspiration, anxiety, or pain. Your thoughts and actions are like stones dropped into still waters, causing ripples to spread and expand as they move outward.. I hope that I can send a few ripples out via the web of life, as we each of us weave the threads together... Welcome to my Sanctuary of Peace and Love... May we each spread our Lights around our World....Sue Dreamwalker
