Tropical Fruiting Plants



You might have heard me talk about a store out of Connecticut, called Logee's.  It is a wonderful greenhouse and garden catalog and store and I have used them many times.  In fact, I have a full greenhouse now because of them.  Nevertheless, I have been taking tumeric in capsule form for a couple of years.  It has been around for ages, but I use it for its anti-inflammatory and tumor suppression properties.  They now have the plant in their catalog.  My daughter uses the fresh tubers in her cooking, though I am not a fan of the taste and will continue it in capsule form.


I also ordered a ginger root plant.  They have sold out in the years before.  I love it pickled with sushi which is what I plan to do with my crop.  If you are interested in plant heaven, go take a look at their website, www.logees.com, better yet, request their catalog.

  1. Hello Donna
    How interesting. I have read about the medicinal properties of turmeric. I am convinced and will give it a try. I particularly like using herbs and spices in their natural form
    Enjoy your weekend. I would love to see your greenhouse

    1. So nice to hear from you Helen. It has been a long time. The greenhouse is ready to be emptied for the long hot summer -the two times a year my husband throws a walleyed fit. The citrus trees are very thorny and I learned a lesson too. The larger the pot, the larger the plant will grow. So take heed growers; do as I say, not as I do.
