I was rummaging through some old photos I took in Cameron Highland last year. They have a lot of these farms where they plant vegetables in these tiny little plastic bags. Now, vegetables aren’t supposed to grow this way, as far as I am concerned. They are supposed to thrive in the soil from the ground, in natural surroundings.
Though the vegetables which we use for salads do look absolutely nice with its green leaves and etc, I wonder how healthy is it? Will it have the same kind of mineral contents and vitamins as those which are planted the traditional way?
Here are our salads all in a row. Looking pretty but is it nutritious? Are we eating just air and maybe bit of fibre?
Do you remember the craze of the hydroponic vegetable container sometimes in early 1990? Almost every homes have one and almost everyone started planting vegetables at home. The problem is they later found out that those vegetables lack ‘substances’. It tastes bland and doesn’t match those from the farms.
