If you have been reading awhile, you may remember back to last year when I ordered this hydroponic garden to grow vegetables indoors because my outdoor critter situation was just too ridiculous.
This is what it looked like back in early summer with some vegetables in it.
But in December I decided that I wanted a change of pace–as well as something that would do well in the cold temperatures of my house in the winter months. So I started 2 kinds of pansies and snapdragons.
Here are the black pansies. The red ones are much slower and still haven’t flowered but they have budded.
And of course the snapdragons are going like crazy. I bought extensions for the lights so that everything wasn’t always hitting them–finally. I should have done that with the tomatoes last summer.
The Spoiler is asking to try kale–kale? Seriously? So the next round of crops will be vegetative again. Maybe I will throw in at least one flower for color. I don’t see him eating much kale.
Meanwhile, this planting has gotten my gardener’s soul through a long, icy winter.
