“Vitamins and minerals in fresh food”


What a winner, the Strawberry! It seem like it is everybody’s favourite. The strawberry is used world wide for all occasions and grown in many countries. The strawberry grows on runners along the ground and each year these runners can be trimmed and planted somewhere else for a new patch to grow more. Strawberries can be grown in pots, as shown, so you can have them as verandah ornamental plants, giving you a food source. I mentioned in the book about growing on the verandah or deck. Here is one example of getting some more fresh food.

Vitamins: C very high, B9, B6, B5, B3, E and K.

Minerals: Manganese very high, Iron, Potassium, Magnesium and some Zinc.

Strawberries supply us with good dietary fibre and carbohydrates and is also a good antioxidant So all in all, a good food.

Be aware of the commercially grown ones as they may contain poisonous chemicals, due to the way they are grown.
