Ok, ok, ok. I’m getting restless now and my kitchen is no longer a place we can sit down to eat. We’ve been eating in the living room because my plants have overtaken the window space.
So I’m kicking procrastination in the ass and moving my stuff outside to the green house, which I should have done a month ago but you know…busy busy. If only there were two of me, the possibilities would be endless.
So I have my big, beautiful lavender plant, kale, parsley, lettuce and basil. I’m also growing oyster mushrooms and sprouts but they stay in the kitchen because they don’t take up much space.
If you live in a climate like I do, where you’re not able to grow outside year round, don’t fret. There are plenty of inexpensive ways (and some expensive ways too) to get around it. Go to your library and check out some indoor or greenhouse gardening books. As long as you have some sunny window space, you’re good to grow. It’s also not terribly difficult to build some thing yourself outside, even out of recycled materials.
We bought greenhouse kits that we assembled ourselves. They can range in price anywhere from a couple hundred bucks to $10k+. You have tons of options if this is something you want to try. Start small and see how you like it! You can always expand if you need to. Keep in mind that putting the greenhouses together can take about 2 weeks, depending on how much time you can spare each day, so plan accordingly.
