Green Blog Project - Winter/Spring 2007

This summer, I saw a blog announcement about Green Blog Project.

Hmm, interesting, I thought and wondered if I could grow something. With no backyard, I turned to pots - both big and small. With lot of enthusiasm and no experience, I hesitantly bought seeds, planted and watered them everyday.

And within days, I had my own little vegetable garden. This was so new and exciting. With my own home-grown vegetables, I made Tomato and Cayenne Chutney and just made Carrot Kheer. I have discovered my Green Thumb!

Now, I am delighted to host the next round of Green Blog Project! Go ahead, get your next batch of seeds, seedlings, plants, fruits and vegetables ready. :)

The rules remain the same. Send me your entries with pictures of your plant and recipes by April 10, 2007. I will do the round up on April 15, 2007. Please send me your entries at ahaarmail@gmail.com.

Please spread the word and I hope you will participate. Remember it will be winter here. I really could use some green!

  4. Asha and Shaheen - I have been thinking about what to grow in winter too. Right now, I have some herbs and onions growing in my pots. I'm hoping I will be able to harvest them during the winter. Herbs grow well in pots if you have snow in your area. Cabbages, broccoli, onions, carrots also grow into late fall. Hope this helps.

    A1 - hearty soup, hmm... I am not sure what will grow in such a short notice :)

  5. Now I want to start growing something in pots too :) This is the first time I even have a porch. Food bloggers, could you please give me some idea about websites that will give me some wisdom about winter gardening (or just gardening for that matter). Ideas like where do you buy herbs to plant them and do you use seeds or shoots...

  6. Hi Mandira,
    Wnderful to have you as the host for GBP, I was a mere spectator for the 1st round-up but I soo want to participate this time atleast.
    I am a student and live in a teeny-weeny apt. All I can possibly manage is a small pot on the window sill. Are there any hopes of me being able to grow something.
    And ya..I live up North in Cincinnati,OH and its already gotten cold here and the snow shud be in soon. Any ideas..??

  7. Mystic - you can start plant your seeds/seedlings in the pot now and enjoy the fresh veggies through winter. you can buy seeds in your local grocery store. For online store, check out this link

    Priya - I am so happy that you are planning to participate in GBP-winter. Pot in the window sill where you get sun will be the best place. You can start with herbs - like lavendar, mint, thyme. If you want to be adventerous, try garlic! I just planted some.
