Gardens and Allergies

I know I said I would post some recipes, but internet has not been steady and I haven’t had the time yet. Right now I am sitting in the offices of American Access, where my family works. I have had a good visit so far here in Tennessee, but I am ready to go home to Virginia. I am planning what vegetables and herbs I will grow on my deck. Anyone have suggestions for small space gardening? I am planning on growing these :
These are the only ones I could think of that could do ok in a container garden. But spring is finally here and I am love spending as much time as i can outside. Here in West Tn. they have this green pollen that goes everywhere! I found some on my computer, that was in the house. I went out the other night with a flashlight and saw what looked like snow through the light, but it was pollen! So crazy! So glad I don’t get allergies, but I know others do, so this is what I did last year that got rid of my allergies within 3 days.
The secret? Raw apple cider vinegar, 1-2 tsp 3 times a day with water. People get allergies when their immune system is down, the apple cider vinegar (ACV) boosts the immune system and breaks down mucus that causes stuffy nose, coughs, and that nasty drainage.
Also pure lavender oil helps with the allergies. Garlic and cayenne contain an anti-histamine called quercetin that helps with the inflammation response system in the body.
You can also add raw honey to your ACV drink, and it will sweeten and help with allergies. Consuming raw local honey helps build your system to local pollen.
Here is some info on helping with allergies naturally, and information on Raw Apple Cider Vinegar.
