Happy Earth Day!


Happy Earth Day, everyone! I hope you are having a lovely day. I know not everyone has a green thumb, So here is a link to some great house plants you can buy that do a great job of scrubbing the air and removing toxins.
 
For those of you who want to try or already enjoy growing some tasty edibles (even if all you have is a tiny little windowsill and no garden to speak of), here are some great links:
I actually grow lots of tomatoes (cherry and grape ones) on my patio every summer, and they are amazing- so full of flavour.  And really easy- all they need is a sunny spot.  Have a great weekend, everyone!

Happy Earth day to you too! I have really enjoyed this "green" series you have posted. I am also a big fan of method products, and I will certainly try the oil mixed with my moisturizer. I've always wanted to grow my own herbs, and my few attempts so far have failed, but I will give it another try thanks to your link! And happy Easter!

I've finally managed to keep a plant alive at work for over a year, and I just discovered that two of the three plants in the same planter are on that list! Now if only I could remember to water the plants at home.

Thanks for the links!

I tried to plant a vegetable garden two summers ago, but I bit off way more than I could chew and it just kind of got away from me. I'd like to try again this year :)

I also saw an article in real simple that used egg shell halves and egg cartons as starters. You take your egg shell half, poke a small hole in the bottom and plant your seeds in there. Then, when you're seeing sprouts, you can just stick the egg shell/seedling in the ground and voilĂ ! The shell just breaks down after that.

While I'm completely baffled as to why one would want to grow grass inside, I am super excited about having a house and yard so I can grow stuff this year!

Thanks for all the links! I wish I wasn't the angel of death to plants. :(

Ooh, I love that serving tray herb stand! And air-cleansing plants are such a great idea, thanks!
