Go Grow It: Fresh Ginger

An easy win for cactus killers: ginger. ‘Tis the season to plant it. Buy a piece from the health food store, or better yet, a farmer’s market. Do yourself a favor and look for a piece with some sprouts (green ends). Put it in a sunny spot with good drainage. Water deeply and often. Like magic, your roots will grow and your ginger has multiplied.

Use it in juices (it has a long list of health benfits), cocktails (for mental health benefits), Oxtail Soup, and other Asian-y dishes.
