Water Garden

I was gifted an Aerogarden several years ago and I love the thing. There is nothing like having fresh basil for pesto, fresh cilantro for your taco’s, fresh mint and chamomile for your tea and fresh dill for potato salad. Currently I am growing basil, marjoram and thyme.

 

With all of the extra light from my Aerogarden it gives me opportunity for additional fresh food.

Place green onions in a few inches of water, change the water and rinse onions every two days. When you harvest them just completely cut the onion a few inches above where the water line is and it will completely regrow to be used again. The same can be done for leeks and celery.

 

I also started growing ginger on my patio to see how that goes, it’s a lovely looking plant.

Spring Flowers

It was a long winter and I also moved. Some of my plants did not make it due to neglect and late freezes, my strawberry and rose are doing fine but all of the bulbs In smaller pots did not do well at all, one bunch of daffodils bloomed and a few didn’t survive the ordeal. But now I have a balcony that actually gets sun (and hopefully less spiders) so I have gotten some new replacements to start with. An old chair from the thrift store has been fixed up and it’s a nice place to have coffee. In my Aerogarden I started some Mint, Rosemary and Mitsuba. Plus some green onions living in a glass.
