Gardening Indoors

    One of my favorite hobbies is growing gardens inside my home.

    During the hard "lockdown", we had fresh salads every day...thanks to my hobby :)

    When gardening indoors, you ultimately control all aspects of the plant's growth and environment. You maintain its water, soil quality, etc.

    A big plus is that your plants are not at the mercy of the weather or outside critters, and you'll hopefully have vegetables year-round.

    I have grown lettuce (mostly Tom Thumb), microgreens, green onions, kale, radishes, pea sprouts, small peppers, small tomatoes, carrots, edible flowers and more...I even have a few sunflowers starting to grow...right in my kitchen.

    However, growing edibles indoors does have its challenges, including a lack of light levels (I use window sills and fluorescent lights), pollinating insects (I use Q-tips for flowering plants), and wind (I use a fan).

    Proper air circulation is vital for flooding the plant with carbon dioxide as well as pollinating any flowers...but a few small fans will take care of that.

    I also prefer to grow my microgreens and pea sprouts on coconut coir or jute. I prefer not to use soil, if at all possible. 

    I do use a mixture of potting soil and vermiculite for plants such as radishes, tomatoes, peppers.

    Growing inside isn't as expensive or as hard as many think. 

    I will be sharing more on how to do this...stay tuned!

    We are living through historic times, my friends...let's get those gardens going!

    As always, our entire family is here to give you hope & encouragement!  We truly love you and pray for you daily!  Never hesitate to send me a prayer request!
