Thank you Dawn! Part 1

Oh wow!  I got a Versitle Blogger Award from Dawn at A New Dawn For Me.  You should go check her out.  Her posts are inspiring, thought provoking and Dawn is always kind and encouraging.

In other news, I have decided we will start having salads every night with dinner.  We did that when I was a kid (was my job to make it) so I have started that again.  Had my son get a bag of Triple Hearts and a bag of Spring Mix and I mixed them together in a larger bag.  Then I put on tomatoes, green onion, cucumber, garbanzo beans, a little cheese and sunflower seeds.

Also, I have been researching how to grow vegetables indoors under a grow lamp.  I got to thinking that if illegal pot growers can do it, why can't I?  For starters, I want salad greens, tomatoes, green onions and carrots.  I have a south facing balcony, but this is Oregon, not enough sunshine.

I don't have a lot of time tonight, my grandson needs my help with his homework.  I hope everyone has a lovely evening.

Thank you for the follow C.

    Great Post x

  2. Congratulations on the award! I love your grow light idea. I'm in Michigan, so a garden is feasible, but I only have a tiny yard & we have big trees. So between all of the shade & the tree roots, there isn't really any place to put a garden.
