As we each come to terms with the way of life that we now have to face with this extraordinary turn of events, there is an overwhelming sense of fear. What will happen to my job, how will I pay for the basics, and what will we eat? Let us face the fear together in an enormously productive and simple way – let’s each plant a vegetable patch. This provides us not only with food for all our family (our pets included of course), but to garden is possibly one of the most therapeutic things one could do.
Gardening enables you to live for the moment and find necessary peace as you can see colour and natural shapes around you, hear the birds and insects, feel the texture of the ground and soil, smell the earthy nourishment and sweet scent of flowers….and eventually taste what you have produced knowing it is full of essential goodness.
If you have no access to a patch of garden, start on a windowsill or patio with potted herbs and sprouts. Maybe find out who gardens at your local allotment, and if they happen to be elderly and are self-isolating, offer to maintain it for them and share the produce.
We are moving into summer with longer daylight times and warmth around the corner. With schools and universities now shut, this is the perfect time to plan your vegetable garden as a family and spend some quality, valuable moments together.
What nutrients can we grow?
The vegetables that we are mentioning are particularly important for your dog, but we would benefit from eating them all too!
Fast growing lettuce, carrots, green beans, runner beans, peas and turnips
Beetroot where we use the whole plant – including the valuable greens that are full of nutrients
Cabbage, broccoli, swiss chard and kale – all so full of calcium
Sweetcorn that grows so fast as the weather warms up
Sunflowers not only for their beauty, but their valuable nutrient rich seeds
Leafy healthy spinach and rocket
Quinoa can even be grown as explained here – A rewarding and nutritious plant to grow
As a small business, we will do all we can to continue to promote the nourishment of our pets with wholesome, clean and nutritious plant-based foods that hold no dangers of causing a second pandemic.
So if you’re concerned about your pet food safety, let’s go plant-based. If you’re concerned about the carbon pawprint of your pet, then let’s go plant-based. If you’re concerned about your pet….
