Those expanding bead thingies saved my container and hanging baskets! Since they shrink and grow, they might not be stable enough for plant roots? Plus, isn't it rather expensive?  The clay pellets are like the things you use to grow paperwhites indoors...I have tons of those!!

My hubby and I used to do hydroponic gardening in the 70's...with some success...I think I still have a book in my library...

I always hear Jimmy Hendrix when I hear "groooovy" Cheesy--ah, the generation gap! Cheesy

Are you sure that no bird seed got mixed in your planter?  It looks like millet sprouts...

No, never wanted to try that so unless some birds wanted to do a flyby and share I can't see how it would get in there unless my packet was mislabeled.

I'm planting my carrots and lettuce outside this weekend. I am using old milk jugs to keep the carrots wrangled.  Cheesy

Hmmm...I have no idea. Did you have corn at all?

ha ha It grows like grass and you will have tons! 

omg--do you do any homemade dressing?  Tarragon can be used in olive oil to make a wonderful dressing!  You can also dry it and use it for soups and rubs for chicken and fish...mmmmm...do you have one of those cedar planks for grilling?  You can lay it with rosemary or whatever herb you like on the plank and then grill your fish on top...delicious!

I love the idea of a window garden. ON that note, I read somewhere about people growing pole beans indoors as a natural "bean curtain". I'll see if I can find a link, it's been a few years since I saw it.

I'm working on some more singed flowers from re-purposed fabrics again. I'm finding that 100% polyester works the best, but you have to be careful of fire no matter what you use. Rayon is really, really unsafe. Ffffffffoooom! Instant flame!

These are various combinations of five different blouse fabrics:

I still have to sew and bead them, but I liked the way they look in a group.  Smiley
