What's Growing In My Kitchen & Produce Nook
I enjoyed my time off - we took Monday and Tuesday as vacation days. My husband's Birthday was March 10th and mine was the 16th. We decided to take his Fiat on some day trips. It worked out well and we were able to hit up a bunch of places that we had been wanting to go but more importantly we were able to get out of town without having to get a place to stay because we came home each of the two nights. More on where we went in various upcoming posts but I will tell you that we hit-up 3 states...New York, Pennsylvania, and Ohio.
But for this specific post I will tell you about a few things that I have been working on in my kitchen in the way of Produce and Window Sill growing. As you can see in this first photo I chopped off the bottom of my celery and am trying to regrow it in my kitchen. I've talked to someone who has done this many times as well as chatted online with some people who have tried it with success, too! Some have done it in just water - making sure that the water is FRESH...and others have started it in their kitchen and then transplanted it in a container or in the ground after it started sprouting from the middle. So I'm going to try this!
Another thing I started in my kitchen recently was herbs. I've done this in the past but this time around I found these neat tins with holes in the bottom that sit on a try so the water can drain but also soak from the bottom. I'm doing Basil, Chives, and Parsley. Both of these attempts - the Celery and the Herbs - are on the Window Sill in my Kitchen.
Last night - the Bananas were ripe - so I cut them up and put them in the freezer. This is the only way I can tolerate Bananas. LESS is MORE. 1 or 2 chunks at a time in smoothies. I recently finished some sprouts in the kitchen and hope to start some more tonight. What are some of the things you have going or growing in your kitchen these days!?
