Join me on my adventures as I try to live a healthier, more relaxed and more spiritual life. In this blog, I narrate my attempts my to do this using healthy recipes, talk about growing my own vegetables, and how I alleviate stress through quilting and positive affirmations. I also talk about those people around me (my family and friends) who make me the person I am.

Plants in the Window

There are a number of things that I love about mornings.  I love waking up to the sound of birds chirping, seeing the sun shine through the windows, and hearing my son tell me to "Wake up Mommy" as he repeatedly jumps on my stomach.  One of my favorite parts of the morning, however, is going with my son to our living room window, and checking out the plants.

For the last month, we've been conducting an experiment of sorts.  I've been trying to grow an assortment of herbs, fruits, and vegetables in boxes in our huge living room window.  We've got cilantro, hot peppers, mustard greens, and tomato plants all sprouting up.  At some point, when the weather is a bit more reliable, these boxes are all going to move out to our deck, but for now they live in our bay window. 

So far, the experiment is going well.  Everything seems to be coming up as it should, and my son loves to point at and count all of the plants. (We get up to about thirteen, and then he starts all over again.)  I'm looking forward to the moment when we can start harvesting what we are trying to grow.  I already have plans for making jars of homemade salse with the tomatoes, peppers and cilantro.  The mustard greens are for my husband...apparently they are a Nepali delicacy.
