Four strawberries are already growing!
Proof that you can grow (some) of your own food with limited space! This is our one-bedroom apartment balcony with limited sun and everything is still growing well.
|Variety of lettuces in the bigger pots. Sprouts for different herbs, wheat grass for cats, and catnip are sprouting in the Keirug coffee cups.|
|Tomatoes, strawberries, basil and other herbs, and some type of flowers given to me by a parent when I completed by Kindergarten student teaching.|
|Tomato plants (don't tell, but I actually do not care for tomatoes)|
|On the left: two Hibiscus plants from our wedding rehearsal dinner, about 11 months old. Unfortunately not in bloom at the moment.|
Ian has also begun raising herbs in an aeroponic planter! Pics from that soon.
|I call it party quinoa because of all the colors. I am not sure which ones are whole grain. I buy organic in bulk.|
|Quinoa burger mixture with plain white quinoa.|
|This was Ian's, topped with tomato sauce and spinach. Made with red quinoa.|
|I have to tell you that I did not pose this picture for this post. This was taken freshman year of college in my dorm room five years ago. I brought Old Bay with me to the cafeteria every day. Thankfully, I stopped that after the first semester, but it just makes everything taste better,|
I still like Old Bay but use it infrequently. I also started using the low sodium variety, though I actually have low blood pressure so sodium is not a big concern. Probably, I could mix up a seasoning similar to Old Bay myself but somehow the thought makes me feel like a traitor.
I hope I've put you in the mood for summer!
|Get the unsweetened. I hope to try 'homemaking' almond milk soon.|
|. mIn the back, you see Tempt Hemp Protein Powder, Cacao Powder, and white Maca Powder. I just bought some Raw Protein Powder I plan to try soon.|
|Our blender is a Hamilton-Beach Wave Action 12 speed.|
|Kale is incredible! The first time I used this green instead of spinach |
I thought "hmm this is a little bitter" but I quickly got used to it.
You can always had more agave if needed.
