Wintering over...


Ahh...at last the herbs (including Johnny the overgrown ficus) are settled in their winter place. Since we are moving, we had to completely change the winter quarters for the plants so they would be ready "to go" at a moments notice! They are glowing with their wonderful greenness in the garage...just waiting for the word to go to the farm! All except the row of herbs along the kitchen window in front of the sink; they have to be there so we can snip them for winter eating.


Herbs do well indoors providing you don't forget about them. They thrive on snipping and must have light and water...a few words of encouragement don't hurt either! I use the kitchen sprayer to water and have a bottle mister that I use daily. Check the soil with your knuckle; if it's dry knuckle deep then water. Turn the herb pot occasionally to evenly distribute the sunlight. If you don't have enough sun, add a grow light. Full spectrum bulbs can be used in just about any kind of lamp. Use left over tea to water; we always use our mate' tea and leaves on our indoor plants.
