    I wish I could grow herbs indoors but I have 4 cats, at least 2 of which chew on everything!  🙁

    Practicle and simple. I have a few warm sunny window spaces and I’m thinking of starting year round strawberries. Have you tried indoor hydro/aquaponics?

    Have you ever tried growing the hot chili peppers on your window sill? I just dug up a small one from the garden when it was getting closer to frost time and potted it up for the window sill,( I did isolate it for awhile in case of bugs) and I had peppers for months. I did have to put it under the grow light in Feb to stop elongation but it was nice to see red and green in the winter window.

    So far I’ve only been able to keep Basil, parsley, and green onion alive on my window ledges.  I had some cilantro but it never got very big and it finally gave up.  I got organic mint and rosemary plants and they didn’t last very long either.  I think it might be a little too cold in my window ledges.

    Hi 😊 thanks for sharing this. I have a question, if u don’t mind? You stayed the soil was half sand and half worm casings. Is that mixed with regular soil? Or is it just sand and worm casings? I did go to your website but I couldn’t find the soil recipe. Thanks a lot and take care-Debbie 😊

    So when you pick the herbs do they keep growing or are these plants that you have to keep planting constantly as you consume them?
