Because of our really short growing season here, over the last month or two we've been starting all of our seeds inside to get a jump start on the growing season. Hopefully we'll have everything big and healthy by the time the ground is warm enough to begin planting. I wanted to share with you a few of the plants, herbs and flowers we've started from seed... ;)
Here are some pictures of some wild flowers that'll go in some baskets outside my bedroom window. Last year I had pansies in the baskets and I absolutely loved them. Waking up to a bunch of happy flowers outside my bedroom window just made my day. ;)
Okay, now we got a little carried away with the dahlias and didn't need to plant them this early... We have at least another month before we can plant them outside. ;)
Artichokes are in the front. Honestly, you don't get much off of them and they take up a bit of space, but they are a lot of fun to eat and I enjoy growing them.
Garlic... I love garlic and its health benefits are incredible! It will stay inside all year. I am planning on doing a post on how to grow garlic indoors all year around.
...and asparagus, one little, lonely asparagus. We originally planted at least a dozen different asparagus plants in the pot and so far, only one has made it...
Beets... honestly, beets taste like dirt, however, beet-greens cooked in butter and fresh garlic is really delicious!
Lavender, I love lavender, especially tea, which I'll also be doing a post on. ;)
Here are our peppers. Red bell peppers, cayenne and habanero...
A whole bunch of herbs and spices. ;)
And of course, hanging baskets!
Tomatoes and corn, heirloom of course!
We have sunflowers, zucchini, ginger, kale and turnips started in the house as well. We still need to get some organic non-GMO potato starts. Sugar snap peas, green beans, carrots and parsnips, we'll start in may probably... other than that, that is pretty much what we're growing this summer...
Our flowers aren't organic, well some of them are, all of our herbs, spices and vegetables are either organic heirloom seeds or non-GMO...
So, can anyone say green thumb? Every window in our home that gets sunlight is filled with plants. :D
So far we've started everything from seed or bulbs, which I think is pretty neat.
I'll update you soon with more pictures.
