Seasonal Effective Order

Indoor Harvest

I'll be picking fresh herbs from my garden tonight. Tortilla soup with cilantro , cucumbers with sour cream and dill, and fresh mint for my strawberry shortcake. The goddess has outsmarted winter with a little help from her aerogarden.

Winter Garden Week Six

First Harvest
It is really amazing how much the herbs have grown in the past two weeks. I have began to snip small amounts to add to various menus. It is a treat to have fresh organic herbs available on my kitchen counter during the cold, snowy days of a Chicago winter.
