Sharesix – Green

Here is a greenhouse update from our Earth Day Post.

This months theme, Sharesix – Green, was chosen by me. I chose the theme Green for a number of reasons. Firstly, my favorite color is green, all shades of green. Secondly, I love growing things. One of my favorite Instagram hashtags is #growsomethinggreen. I haven’t always had a green thumb, its taken many years of patience and many plant cemeteries. Lastly, I try and live a green life through reusing, recycling, and being resourceful. I try to make as many of my own household and personal products that I can, I wouldn’t say its a real money saver, but I would say its much better for our bodies, and our environment.

Here is my take on Green this month, our first indoor greenhouse. We started this on Earth Day, see the post HERE.

These photos were taken just 9 days in! I can’t believe how successful it’s been so far! If you have been wanting to start your own indoor garden, I strongly recommend you get started with these easy indoor planters. We started each plant from seed.

You can purchase these indoor Greenhouses from IKEA HERE & HERE.

I personally decided a long time ago, that the best thing I can do for my family is care for their health through food. Growing some of our own produce has become something my whole family takes part in.

Have questions about our plants? Leave them in the comments and I will do my best to answer them!

    I love your take on the theme green Brandi. I envy folk with green fingers. M y dad was one of those people. I forget to water. I especially love your last image with the sharp focus and blur.

    I didn’t always have a green thumb! I had many failed garden attempts before I finally figured some things out. 🙂

    Thank you so much Lynette, I will check out your page. I haven’t had much luck over the years with flowers. They take a bit more attention than produce in my opinion!
