Plottin’ and schemin’

I was at one of the co-ops I use a couple of months ago and they had fresh turmeric in the produce section.  I was astounded.  I had never seen it fresh before, only ever dried and ground.  I was taken aback, to say the least.  It looked like dark orange ginger.  But I didn’t have any particular idea what I would do with it so I didn’t buy any.  But, now I know what kind of plant it is.

A friend of ours commented that his wife had grown ginger this year and I had seen notices about ginger growing workshops in our area, so I know it can be done in this part of the world.

Then, this link popped up on my FaceBook Timeline. 

It just so happens that I have a couple  of large, ornamental flowerpots that aren’t in use and I’m thinking that turmeric will grow the same way ginger does.  So, I believe I will plant ginger in one pot and, if I can still find fresh, turmeric in another one.
