A late winter snapshot from the indoor garden

Last spring, as I ate a grapefruit I noticed the seeds inside it had begun to sprout, right in the unlikely climate of the citrus fruit. After soaking the seeds for a day or two, I potted them up and found space for them in my indoor garden. Today the seeds have formed into little [...]

Snapshots from a small indoor garden.

It's mid-January, and magic is everywhere if you know how to look for it. My indoor gardening space is bright, low maintenance and reflects back much more energy than it takes.

A couple weeks later, my friend was cutting my hair and offered me an organic grapefruit. Hesitantly I accepted- I've always hated [...]

Late Spring and Early Summer Indoor Gardening Joy.

This week, as late spring rapidly turns to early summer, I'm witnessing a profusion of gorgeous Passiflora blooms. Several types of Passionflowers- Maypop is shown above and Star of Clevedon below. The Lake George region is a great place to have an indoor garden: winters are so long, dark and cold up here. It's really [...]

Jessecology Winter Indoor Gardening Wheatgrass Project

This winter I have been co-operating with a new, female-owned health food store in my community by supplying them with my homegrown Wheatgrass. The store is in South Glens Falls, NY and it's called, "Rooted in Nature." The process of learning about Wheatgrass and how to grow it has been long, slow and beautiful. My [...]
