Garden Indoors...

I garden year around.  During the spring, summer and early fall, my garden is outside.  The rest of the year, my garden is inside in a south window of my kitchen, where I have a small greenhouse.  I also have plants scattered here and there throughout the house, that rotate through the greenhouse.

This is my greenhouse- a $29 special, marked down less than half the original price when our local Pamida store closed.  I also use it to start seeds for the garden.  So, it pretty much gets used year around.  During the winter, I scoot it over a tad so that it catches half of a heat register, which at times gets it hot and steamy inside, and the plants love it.  During the summer, I move it over off the floor register so that it does not get the cold air from the A/C, as the plants don't like that as well. 


Some of the things I like to grow inside are onions, garlic and celery. (They can be moved outside later when its spring planting time).

My friend Shery shared this website with me, mommy of a monster.com that shows with pictures how to do this with leftovers from store bought celery, onions and garlic.  I thought I would share it with you.  This is a fun activity that the kids will like to help with, and will also like to help eat.

You can also add in growing sweet potato vines, avocados and more!
