The Foods Of Love

figsBy Cindy Naas

There are many foods reputed to have aphrodisiac tendencies, and many of these foods are fruits and vegetables.

While it may be too late to grow these for this Valentine’s Day, you might consider serving some or all at a special dinner this year.

Who knows- you may even be inspired to grow your own fig tree because of this!

  • Asparagus – long considered an aphrodisiac, French bridegrooms were fed three courses of this vegetable prior to their wedding night. It is also rumored that the Romans fed asparagus to their stallions. At any rate, asparagus is delicious, good for you and a great plant for an urban farmer, even growing well in dedicated pots.
