My Winter Window Garden.
Spring is around the corner (sort of), so I am getting
my plants ready in the kitchen window!
Dwarf sunflowers, purple basil and coleus are in production right now! It gives me joy, and my son a thrill, to see these fresh green sprouts when its still VERY MUCH Winter outside.

You don't need to wait 'til spring. Move to Florida. No, wait, in Ocala we just had four nights of hard freeze and that killed most everything.

Nice photo and I hope you get your plants in soon!

You'll enjoy that basil I bet. I just got petunias going last week, they're slow-growers. Last frost date for Boise: 5-10

Great job with the garden. Mine, not so well.

I grow my own vege too, not all of it but even a small amount brings much pleasure!

Those little baby plants are so pretty. Like kittens and puppies, I find baby plants more enduring the big ones. :-0

I should be starting mine.

Nice capture.

I love Boulder. I used to go there a lot--my brother lived there and I loved to visit him. But he's moved to Lafayette and we don't get out as much. SO it will be fun to check in on you. Love the banner.
