All living things can thrive given the right environment

Tuesday, January 08, 2013

Even in winter I still want to have fresh herbs. Hereís my happy little basil plants. Thereís oregano and parsley too on another shelf. After much trial and error and experimentation, I finally found the right location as well as amount and frequency of water needed.



Thereís a parallel here for me as well. After much trial and error Iíve settled into an eating plan that works for me. I love the SP environment and, as Iíve been writing lately, Iíve discovered a location where I can enjoy distance running again.

My plants naturally bend toward the sun. Similarly, itís up to me to take maximum advantage of my environment.

    Would love to have fresh herbs available anytime - and I'll put that on my to-do list for this year. Way to find your own balance too - and thanks for being an inspiration!

    That's great.

I had some jalapeno and habenero plants (and some basil) that were still around after the rest of the garden was gone. After ignoring them all winter (and after 3 freezes), they are still producing!!! Who would have thought??!!

    I love my indoor herbs too! 6 different ones grow in mine, given natural sunlight and a little extra help from a lamp.

I'm glad you found what works for you!

    That is awesome! I have thought endlessly about a way to make and indoor garden for the winter and haven't come up with a plan that would work well. This looks great and has to be so rewarding!! Just awesome.
