The Basement Floor is Covered in Green

I have been lax in posting pictures of my finds from last weekend's shopping trip, or fiasco, if you read my last post.  The reason being.....

My real "job"- as a Greenhouse Grower/Organic Vegetable Farmer.  My little hands have been busy transplanting almost 800 plants this week.  Trying to get everything ready for the greenhouse next month.  Tomatoes started from seed last month are huge already!


This is one of the azaleas I propogated from my Grandmother's yard in July 2008.  It is now in bloom in our basement!  That shine on the leaves is from an enormous grow light.  You almost need sunglasses to go down there.

Petunias, verbena, fuschia, coleus, begonia, I've seen them all this week!

I love gardening, and have started my little herbs in my kitchen windowsill... little green sprouts are sooo exciting to see coming up! I am also into organic gardening and buy as many organic products as I can find around here... your photos are beautiful! Happy Spring! xoxo Julie Marie
