Indoor because it’s inside my screened porch. Outdoor because the porch is outside!
Hi everyone! I realized that I never showed you what I did with some of my herbs and veg.
All my lettuce bolted in my vegetable garden (even with the cute paper umbrella) because of the heat. I couldn't even get any new lettuce seeds to germinate in my veggie garden due to excessive heat! So I planted seeds in a container. I left them outside until I got a few leaves and then I’d alternate bringing the container in during the heat of the day and putting it back out (when I remembered at night). So far it’s working quite well!
I’m going to start a pot of micro greens too since we like to mix them into our salads.
I potted some swiss chard seedlings. Also a basil plant and a bit of parsley.
Lemon verbena and rosemary are also some herbs I have growing here.
There’s a skylight over this table so all the plants get some direct sun during the day, but it doesn’t beat down on them like it would outside.
It’s continuing to be pretty hot (in the 90’s) so I think I’ll keep my little indoor/outdoor garden for a while longer! Besides, it gives me something to tend to since it's too hot to go outside in the main garden.
I am going to take a little break from blogging/the computer. I'll be back in a week or so. I'm not going to re-run any old posts while I'm gone. You can have a look in the archives if you haven't already done so. You can search by category like gardening or seasonal decorating for example.
For those people that asked: My couch is from IKEA, the slipcover is from IKEA
