Our indoor garden

When we got back from vacation, I was surprised to find that my seedlings were kicking butt.

I'm determined this year to have an awesome veggie garden. Each year I try to have a good harvest and then give up because our vegetable garden is visible from our neighbor's window. Every time I go out there to work in it, he feels the need to talk to me through his kitchen window and then come outside for a conversation. I don't mind a quick chat, but it's never a quick chat. Ugh! Maybe this year I will wear a bee keepers outfit to avoid eye contact and conversation.

Also, our basement flower garden is kicking butt too. Here's our very sophisticated set up. Just some lights on timers- nothing fancy here.


  1. An oasis in your basement - amazing. I really take our garden and warm weather climate for granted!

  2. I have been researching what I want to start for my herbal tea garden this year.

    I was also thinking of starting from seeds this time. Thanks for posting, it's getting me excited for spring!

  3. Wowee, you have a green thumb! As a person who manages to kill every plant she owns, I'm jealous!

  4. Lauren, I have about 6 cells of chamomille that I started from seed if you'd like some.

    It's funny that the basement is the best place for the plants. Last year we brought a few in, but we keep our house around 58 degrees. They didn't like that.

  5. I have a similar neighbour. Except she is 93 so I feel bad if I don't give her a little attention.
