It's All In How You Look At It

What do you see? Little green sprouts?  I see salad dressing, pesto and pizza. Of course, it helps to know that these are basil sprouts. The anticipation is almost too much to bear. I can't wait until they are ready for use.

Keeping It Green

Although it doesn't look like much now, in a few weeks this will be a tasty head of cabbage. And it will have star billing in my version of sausage and cabbage soup!

Winter Experiment


Oh the winter's been snowy and icy 
So gardening outside would be dicey 
But inside no cold winds blow 
So let things grow, let things grow, let things grow. 
(With apologies to Sammy Cahn)

Just a little experiment to see what I could grow in a 2 liter bottle planter during the winter months. This Valentine lettuce definitely needs more room, but it's interesting to see how far it developed.
