One of the loveliest surprises this year in our summer garden was the beautiful flowers on the turmeric plant.
Dried and fresh turmeric root has amazing health properties so we look forward one day to harvesting some delicious turmeric root to add to our curries, soups, veggie burgers and vegetable pates.
Now if you want to read more about home harvesting of turmeric and ginger please check out Julie’s blog Towards Sustainability.
Julie lives in Newcastle New South Wales and if you check out her blog entries for Ginger harvest Saturday July 4 2009 and her entry for her Turmeric harvest Thursday July 2 2009 you will be amazed at her harvest for last year.
I reckon Julie is a garden hero!
