Gearing up for growing food!

It’s just about time to start more indoor leaf lettuce and arugula. The three containers seeded in late November have been serving me daily since mid-December. These are grown hydroponically using a simple version of the Kratky method.


Planters are washed for the next round of hydroponic heirloom leaf lettuces and arugula. Arugula goes in my eggs, chopped into tuna, and often is just eaten plain –  plants plucked whole from the planter. Lettuce, too, yum!

I love eating plants grown indoors through these cold months. Spring is on my mind, probably yours, too. Gonna play with some new things this year like organic soy for edamame and beans for drying. Of course, the seeds from the six type of tomatoes grown last season have been kept and dried. Can’t wait for Spring!

    Kathy Dakter has grown several kinds of beans for drying. I am thinking about expanding my garden also, as the local Victory Garden group is again offering a 4×8 raised bed with soil and installed for $25,thanks to a generous grant from some kind hearted soul!!! It would normally cost $150.

  3. What fun, Pam! Do it! You seem to enjoy the garden. Cukamelon is another fun crop that I’m going to do. It needs a trellis or such. YouTube is great for seeing what others are doing and how to do affordably.
