Welcome to our Fall Fundraiser. It takes money and manpower to run Krishna.com. Our staff of enthusiasts tinker tirelessly to bring you the website all about Krishna, delivering Krishna conscious content to over 4000 people a day in 195 countries. That's more than a million people each year. Help us help more people. We still need to raise $12,000 $10,241 to keep Krishna.com alive and vibrant for the next six months. Thank you to those who've contributed $1759 so far. Please help. If everyone reading this gave five dollars—the equivalent of two gallons of gas at current US pump prices—we'd be done with this fundraiser and could go back to doing what we love most...

My Winter Garden - Part Two


As I explained in Part One, a number of edible plants are doing very well in my midwinter patio garden. This perennial herb is Sheep Sorrel (Rumex acetosella). It can be eaten raw or cooked. I throw the leaves in dals and salads. It has a pleasantly sour flavour.


It has distinctive arrow-shaped leaves that make it easy to identify. If planted in the garden, it will run riot, so I keep mine in pots. Sheep sorrell is very deep-rooted and I cut the long-stalked leaves as needed. The leaves stimulate the salivary glands of the mouth, and for this reason, eating a few leaves at the commencement of a meal is most beneficial to digestion. I love it on top of avocado.

Sorrell Up Close:

Leaves of sheep sorrell are a very powerful antioxidant, as a protection against pollutants, and provide a strong line of defence for the immune system.

Sheep sorrel leaves have been valued as a diuretic to remove excess fluid from the body, for urinary and kidney complaints, to strengthen the heart and for many other therapeutic uses. The leaves assist the body in throwing off viral infections. Many people eat sheep sorrel leaves regularly as a cancer preventative. Highly recommended!
