Grow Some Green!

There are many benefits to growing trees, shrubs and plants!
They improve the environment by moderating climate, improving air quality, conserving water, and harboring birds and wildlife. Planting also helps to hold soil in it's proper place by reducing erosion and flooding. When we plant, the natural cycles of plant growth, reproduction and decomposition are present, both above and below ground. 

Flower, fruits and vegetables are not only beautiful but, they can be delicious, too!  Even if you live in a small apartment, you can grow a vegetable garden indoors and harvest your own produce. Indoor gardens help to bring the outdoors in and can help make us feel more serene, peaceful and tranquil.

 I cannot plant outside here, the owners won't allow it. I do want to get another plant for inside the house and later when we move, we will definately be planting a garden!

 I would love to have a garden, but we lease our house and the landlord won't allow it : (.  If I could have a garden I would plant kale, tomatoes, carrots, radishes and parsley.  We do have lots of trees and plants/shrubs in our yard.  One is a pear tree : ).   I just put out fresh mulch a couple of weeks ago and pruned all the plants/shrubs.  Everything is blooming and looks so pretty.

Yes i love to grow our own food. We will be planting tomatoes, green peppers, cucumbers, maybe some onions, jalapenos, & whatever else I might find.

I like gardening - I think...  We have not been anywhere where I could actually grow anything outdoors...  And I kill inside plants, so I don't know...
