2023 New Year, New Goals, New Growth
2023 is here and Christmas and New Years have past, now is time to get back into the consistent groove of market gardening and marketing our garden. We have many goals for Rainbow OMG in 2023, we will be far more active on Instagram, Facebook and Twitter as well as adding short form, educational video content to our website, YouTube, Tik Tok and Instagram. We will also be expanding our delivery area, Horsham we are coming your way in early 2023!

Some of our products may be a little different to what customers are used to so we will be providing Product Profiles in our Weekly Post and in a dedicated page on our website. This will provide recipe ideas and nutritional information for all of the vegetables and products we offer.
Product Focus: Garlic
Most people are aware of Garlic however we feel it is vital that everyone understands the nutritional and healing powers of this amazing vegetable. Garlic is arguably the most important vegetable or herb to regularly include in your diet for a healthy, happy life.
There are thousands of studies verifying Garlic’s beneficial effects on our health and it has been proven to assist in the prevention and treatment of:
- Heart Disease
- High Blood Pressure
- Colds (corona viruses) and Infections,
- Hair Loss
- Alzheimer’s Disease and Dementia
- Diabetes and much more.Nutritionally Garlic contains:
- Vitamin’s C, E, K, B6 & A
- Folate, Choline, Allicin (Sulphur),
- Calcium, Iron, Magnesium, Phosphorous, Potassium, Sodium, Zinc, Copper, Manganese, Selenium and more.
Eating Organic Garlic is especially important as chemically raised garlic is typically sprayed with a poison post harvest to stop it from sprouting.
Cooking with Garlic is very easy so why not try some of these ideas:
- The base of any cooked meal usually consists of Onions, Carrot, Celery and shredded or chopped Garlic
- Whole cloves can be roasted creating a sweeter flavour to be used a side or dip
- Shredded garlic can be added to a salad dressing for a spicy, healthy kick
- Add shredded garlic to your preferred taste to mashed potatoes
- Infuse shredded garlic in olive oil
- Cut slits in a roast lamb or beef and insert whole cloves into the meat. The garlic will roast inside flavouring the meat and melting the garlic
- Make home made garlic bread
