Gardens all over the damn place, right?
One of my favorite things about warm weather is our herb garden. When we moved into the little rented condo that we (loved so much and) called home for two years we decided to plant a summer herb garden on our balcony. When we moved into our forever home we decided to plant another on our patio. It's so nice to have basil to pluck for fresh pesto and rosemary for roasted veggies all summer long. It helps save money and I love adding a healthy, fresh flavor to our daily dishes.
So when summer's over, there goes the garden. We've tried a few times to move our little garden indoors but our jerky cats have proved that motion invalid. They will knock over and chew whatever plant life we try to bring indoors. In his six years Joodle has shattered four vases because his love of chewing on flowers is just so powerful. What a butt.
Recently though I thought of a solution: something under glass. I'm trying to get Rhyno to build our kitchen window out and cover it with glass so we can slide the slats open to water it and it'll be a tiny greenhouse in our kitchen. He hasn't been receptive to it yet but, hey, I'm still working on it.
Do you have pets and keep plants indoors? What's your secret?
