Like I mentioned earlier this week, I've been getting more into gardening, mostly growing my own food. It's tough to keep that up in the winter! Most of my plants have seen better days. Some of the winter greens, like bok choy and Swiss chard, are doing all right, but my food garden isn't nearly as diverse as it was in the spring and fall.
One of the best ways to keep growing food in the winter, if you don't have a green house or hoop house, is to keep some food plants indoors. I love this indoor herb garden, featuring mint, parsley, and rosemary all in one pot!
Mint really likes to take over whatever container it's in, so I'd probably keep the mint separate and replace it in this arrangement with something like basil or pineapple sage that's still hearty but also plays well with others. I love the idea of mixing up herbs in the same pot, though, to maximize what you can grow even in a small space.
Are you guys doing any indoor gardening this winter?
