January means it’s herb month! I have started planting herbs that will stay indoors. So far, I have basil planted. I also have rosemary, cilantro, thyme, parsley, oregano, mint and a few others.
My parents have green onion that I am very jealous of, so I will also be adding some green onion to grow and have on hand.
If you are interested in getting started with me, you might want to pick up some of these organic wheat pellets. They are like little dirt pods that expand in water. I purchased mine on amazon and they take 2 days to ship.
These are pretty inexpensive and very convenient to have on hand.
I recommend these herbs. They are high quality and made in the USA. Almost all of my seeds come from this company.
This winter I have decided to come up with ways to continue harvesting produce. I have been researching constantly and have decided on getting some lemon, lime, fig and clementine trees for my home. We will be able to enjoy fruit all year this way. I am planning on buying these trees from amazon if you are also interested.
I found this tree much cheaper, $30. I ordered it! It comes in two weeks!
I have also finally transferred my succulents!
I need to order some more aloe. The goal for me is to have plants that have purpose, whether it’s edible or medicinal.
My next post will be about turning kitchen scraps into producing plants. So many things we throw away can actually be regrown. This is an awesome project for kids to get involved in. Stay posted, I’m hoping to have some more information this evening when I get a chance.
