The family room in our house is starting to look like an outdoor garden indoors. It's fun to start planting and watching the seed grow into a plant, but sooner or later, just like kids, they need to go. (hahaha). Seriously though, please warm weather, come here soon.
|Squash, cucumbers started in the aerogarden|
|Another view: in the pots are catus, tomatoes, and strawberries|
|I just started peppers|
You can see I need to get these in the ground or, in my case, in my rain gutter growth garden.
Speaking of which, here is a picture of garden set up this year:
|Here's the beginnings of it|
|This are rain gutters. Right now we are trying to save money so we had some aluminum gutters we are using. But probably plastic gutters would be better|
|We are using 3 inch net cups on the bottom of the buckets. We drill a hole in the bottom to insert the cup, then the cups sit in the gutter with water in it.|
|All the buckets will have holes in them like the third from the left. It allows the roots to have air.|
I'm so excited to see how this set up works. There is a man named Larry Hall who came up with this idea. He's on youtube and also has a facebook page if you'd like to look him up. Amazing what he invented!
I celebrated my birthday yesterday. Will put up pictures in my next post.
