Bring the garden indoors!

Autumn has sure made a firm grip on the Upper Midwest. However, think again if you think the growing season is over. Surely, you’ve seen the billboards across town about “Hydroponics” offering a pesticide-free, indoor growing environment. But for the beginner, think small! Many plants such as peppermint, chives, and rosemary will thrive indoors during the winter months, so long as they have some adequate sunshine. You can purchase these plants at area greenhouses and home centers, even this late in the season. I found a great article from the DIY Network on growing plants during the colder months. Check it out!

If you’d like to try something a little more challenging, you can purchase the supplies to create your “indoor garden.” Hydroponics is increasing in popularity. I, for one, don’t have much of a green thumb (unless my green pen explodes in my hand) but it may just be the perfect hobby as winter approaches. Do you move your veggies indoors for the winter?
