I have had so much fun watching this Turmeric root grow into such a beautiful plant. I purchased a small piece of Turmeric root at the Raleigh Farmer's Market a few months back and placed it in a glass of water in my kitchen window until it had little green buds on the top of it. Once the buds appeared I placed it into a pot of soil and set it in full sun. I am amazed at how fast it has grown and also how large and beautiful it is. It is definitely an easy cheap plant to grow and once summer ends I should have a large amount of Turmeric root to harvest and have for my green juice this winter.
