I can't keep up with using our garden herbs fresh and if you don't clip them every few days, they will bolt to seed and stop producing leaves. My solution is to dry them on the front porch (or in a super low toaster oven on a rainy day.) We crumble them up and keep them in a jar near the stove...yum!

The pumpkins are looking very happy so far....but no flowers yet, fingers crossed.

Have 3 of those in our garden, and they work very well.  That is a great price, btw!

Good to know. Our property can get wet, plus the soil is pretty sandy so these will allow us to build up good stuff. We compost everything. Boxes, junk mail, yard trash, Republicans, grass clippings.

We do most of that stuff--but we did not think of republications.  Thanks for the tip. :)

Composted republicans? I'd be afraid of turning red.

Some "pea" microgreens grow like weeds and taste sweet when chopped up and sautéed. I grow them from a big bag of dried whole peas that we also use to make pea soup. Notice how we covered up the cabinet facing with tin ceiling panels.

We also used real fossils from the Green River formation to decorate the kitchen !

I killed my parsley.  I ate and ate and ate but couldn't keep up with it, and the heat...I was absent for a few days. The balcony gets too much sun.

Maybe the most amazing veg I ever tried. Saved a bunch of cantaloupe seeds and grew them as microgreens under a light in coco coir (husk). Fresh cantaloupe aroma, lightly sweet, with slight fresh cucumber taste.



For some spectral reasons, the pros often use pink led lights and so do I. Very low wattage and they make a nice glow in the den where we grow under a fireplace mantle.

The salad potential is limitless, lol.

This morning glory is a survivor. A few weeks ago, I went to water it and noticed a bunny had chewed its stalk in half. I took the top end and stuck it back in the soil. It worked!
