Been thinking about starting your own greenhouse or starting to grow your plants indoors? It is getting close to that time of year where gardeners and the like are yearning for the feel of dirt beneath their fingertips and begin feverishly planning and mapping out this year’s plantings.

Growing your own garden is not only an activity that you can do with your entire family, but it is an easy way to promote sustainability. Eating what you grow and what is grown in your local area avoids the pollution that would have been generated by shipping the food to your town. If you grow your own, not only do you get healthy food, but you have the comfort of knowing exactly what was put in your soil and on your crops.

If you are just learning about how to grow your food indoors, Gardener’s Supply has a great "How To" section on their website that helps spell out some of the questions/problems associated with starting seeds inside.

    I put my lettuce plants and spinach plants in the ground the last week of March. I am enjoying picking my own salad all week! Love to sautee my spinach in a little olive oil and garlic!
    Who knew this Spring was going to be so warm, but it sure paid off for me!
