This woman was born in Florida, and she says that she has found the “fountain of youth”.
Annette Larkins showed us her garden in her backyard. It is interesting that every little corner of her backyard is full of fresh fruits and vegetables. It is full of edibles. She collects rainwater to drink and to water her plants as well.
She says that what she grows becomes her “Fountain of Youth”.
“I am very vibrant, I have lots of energy, as I told you before, I am up no later than 5.30 in the morning as a rule, and I am ready to go,” she said.
She takes cares of her garden the same way as having a baby. She mentioned that having a garden is just like having a baby. You need to take care of your garden, provide food and nutrients for your fruits and veggies in order to give the best food, and give love to them. She said that’s the key to a perfect garden.
Annette says she doesn’t eat animal products – her food is directly from her organic garden, unprocessed and uncooked. “My diet consists of fruits, nuts, vegetables and seeds. I do a lot of sprouting of seeds and as you can see from my garden and of course these are the raw foods that I eat.”
She makes juices from everything that she owns in her garden, as long as it raw and fresh, she can turn it into a juice. Grapefruits, pineapples, even spinach. Actually, not everyone in the Larkins family eats and drinks this way.
Her husband said that people couldn’t believe that she is his wife. They would often comment things like: ‘what are you doing with a young girl? or they will say ‘you’ve got your granddaughter with you,’ things like that.”
Her husband also points out that she is a vibrant woman. He believes that the food has a great impact on her mood and motivation. She is energetic and fresh, healthy and positive! “She is an amazing person, she does everything. I mean she builds computers, makes all of her own clothes, grows her own food, speak three languages, it’s amazing.”
Isn’t this amazing? Growing your own food has the biggest benefit of all! The ability to eat your own fresh food! And we have these people to inspire us and motivate us to make the best out of earth and our environment!
