{April 27, 2010}   the start of the indoor garden, and other ramblings

wow we have peace. For the first time since i arrived home from work almost an hour and a half ago the music has stopped. You see I live in a flat, and the flats are sort of built  in a square with a communal garden in  the middle and tonight someone has been having a BBQ outside and playing drum and bass really quite loud. Now i quite like the music but it’s just at that level where it’s a bit more than background noise, and ever so slightly annoying. I really hope that this isn’t the start of a summer of noise.

Anyhow back to topic. For a long time I have admired those who “grow their own” knowing where their fruit and veg has come from and what, if any, pesticides and chemicals have been used on them. Up until lately I hadn’t really thought anymore about it because as I said above I live in the flat and only have access to a communal area.

However on forum I am a member off someone posted something about their “indoor garden” and it got me thinking. I have a long bay type window in the living room, that at the moment just acts as a space for junk. So in my lunch break the other day I popped into Wilkinsons and decided to start off with some herb plants as apparently they are quite easy to grown (and they need to be because any other plant  have ever had I have managed to kill). So after moistening the soil with a little water and pressing the seeds in they are now sitting on my windowsill and will hopefully start sprouting soon. My basil and oregano seeds, all potted and waiting to grow

You really could not get any easier, everything came in a nice little tub (it has a separate plant pot inside), i’m hoping to buy a few more and it should benefit my cooking too.
