We love turmeric, have you noticed? It excites us and we keep talking about it.
After researching the health benefits of turmeric, not only have we found more ways to regularly incorporate it into our diet – via supplement form, juice, tea, and the fabulous haldi milk drink – we also begun applying it as an anti-aging facial mask to cosmetically improve and nourish the skin.
And now we want to show you how you can grow your own turmeric at home so you can can have fresh turmeric on hand for all your preparations. While it is possible to find fresh turmeric root in grocery stores, it is not that easy to find. And if you are lucky enough to find it, you’ll notice that it’s bit on the pricey side. After reading Backyard Gardening Blog’s article, it’s understandable why turmeric root costs more. It takes 8-10 months to grow turmeric, and because it’s a root, there’s no snapping off a piece here or there while the plant grows.
If you’re turmeric-crazy as we are, then head over to Backyard Gardening Blog to learn how to easily grow your own. Unless you live in zone 9 or warmer, plan to grow your turmeric plant in a container indoors.
