Greens, Onions, Rose & Grow Light Garden


Here is the last of the lettuce and spinach that I will be harvesting from the cold frame this year!  I still have some kale growing.  It is small but that is the way I like it.  If I don't forget to cover it for the cold nights I think I will continue to harvest from that small patch for awhile!


I went out to harvest the last of the green onions!  The soil was frozen!  That is what happens when one procrastinates!!!!!  It was in the 20's in the daytime here today.  Brrrrrrrrr!!!!  Colder than normal this time of year!


I had a birthday this month and got another year younger!!  "Wonderful Gardener" brought me this beautiful rose to enjoy.  No flowers outdoors but this rose in the house is so pretty to enjoy.


I received this wonderful Grow Light Garden for one of my gifts!  I have not planted seeds in the past in the house very much but looking forward to learning how to use this.  Hoping to grow some lettuce for my salads this winter.  Please, pretty please, if you have  any advice or information you can give me it will be appreciated..  It did not come with a whole lot of info!


Here is a close up picture of it.  Stay warm every one.  It will soon be gardening season again!!!!!

Wish I could help, but I'm a total failure at indoor growing. Good luck with the grow lights. And Happy Birthday!

Hi Daphne, Thanks! Birthdays just keep rolling around! I will probably make mistakes but will have fun with the inside garden! Nancy

Happy Birthday to you!!! What a beautiful rose!!! Ditto with Daphne on being a total indoor garden failure. I do better 'composting' seeds over-winter outside than starting any seeds indoor. :)

Happy birthday Nancy! I hear you on the onions. I waited a bit too long to cover my garlic & strawberry beds with straw and now we have a few inches of snow covering them! I too am not the greatest at indoor plants - I almost killed the one plant I overwintered last year (rosemary)! I'm looking forward to reading about your experience with the grow lights - it may inspire me to try it one day too.

Hi lisa, Thanks! Haven't planted anything yet so hoping I am successful! Need to read up on it before planting and haven't had time to do that yet. Nancy

Hi Margaret, Thanks! The comments so far on the Grow Lights have not been too encouraging! LOL I need to read up on it before I plant. Hoping for the best! I still haven't covered my strawberries neither but no snow on them yet. Nancy

Hi Nancy! Happy Birthday! What nice gifts you received! The rose is beautiful! And the grow light garden is awesome! I always start my seeds under a grow light, so it's probably about the same. Just sow seeds, water, and watch it grow I guess! I hope it works well for you! Keep us posted! Blessings from Bama!
