Here is a particularly fun gardening post at the Great Orange Satan.

I’m feeling ornery:

Let the 70’s/funk youtube wars begin.

It is on.








Indoor Garden?

I’ve become quite accustomed to having fresh herbs at hand- it is so nice to be able to just go to the fridge, pull out some basil that you have grown, picked, washed, and stored, and use it- no more going to the store and paying exorbitant amounts for fresh herbs. I’m thinking about trying to grow them year round inside.

What all would it take? Could I just use one of those window planters and a grow lamp? Is that all I would need? What size lamp?

Saw this on the way to the greenhouse and knew it needed to be recorded for posterity:

The friend I was with claims that these are actually quite popular and actually have more to do with knitting than eating tasty meat.

Got to the greenhouse and could not make a decision. I put in mint, catnip, two types of basil, sage, rosemary, thyme, lemon balm (by request!), parsley, oregano, and cilantro at the garden at my brother’s house, but I was going to put in a planter at the apartment, yet when I got there I could not make up my mind. Should I just grow some basil and sage and thyme and parsely and cilantro at home, since I will use those most and it would be convenient, or should I grow stuff I don’t have growing that might have different light needs and would be higher maintenance at the apartment, since I can move the planter? I need some lavender, too.

Your thoughts?

Also, I rented the first four episodes of Chuck.
