As we sit here in the first official storm warning of winter, preparing for the first snowblowing worthy snowfall of the year my thoughts are of course on Spring and tasty things growing. My thoughts became strong to keep ignoring, so I began to make plans, I cleaned out the old Aerogarden and found some old flower pots and got ready to go. Unfortunately I can’t find much in the way of seeds I have hope for viability. Fortunately I have access to the internet and the some nice people agreed to send my seeds in exchange for my credit card number.
My Winter garden this year will be.
One straggly dwarf Meyer lemon tree that looks 90% dead all the time, only grows about 15 inches high and has at most 10 scattered leaves, but every year produces me one normal sized lemon, and it is almost ready, starting to yellowify.
One non-dwarf-dwarf lime tree that exists only in a two dimensional plane against the window, and usually gives me a lime or two a year, also currently as one lime growing and will likely be ready within a week or two.
One long window planter of garlic I started a few months ago, as an experiment, I’ve never done garlic before.
One pot of hot peppers; the seeds should only be 6 years old or so, so there is a chance they will still grow. They are a random hybrid of about 6 types of hot peppers I have had over the years that have cross-fertilized, and the seeds are dumped into a bowl for replanting when ever I cut them for cooking.
One pot of cinnamon basil that I doubt are very viable, but it’s damn near a weed so it might grow .
And sweet basil, Oregano, and Thyme coming in the mail for the Aerogarden.
What do you folks plant indoors to pretend the entire world isn’t completely dead?
People in year-round growing climates can shut up ;).
