Yes, I Garden In A Bag!

I was never known for having a green thumb or being able to keep anything green, green. Knowing that I lack the skills to keep any living creature besides myself alive, I still am hopeful. I try to buy plants once in a while and keep them alive. My new project is a fun one, not only I’m trying to keep something alive I’m actually growing it from scratch!!!

The motivation behind the new green project was this “Garden-in-a-bag” kit from Potting Shed Creations. Living in a condo doesn’t give me a lot of options or room to experiment with gardening, Garden-in-a-bag is the perfect solution to that problem.

Everything I need comes in this little bag that doubles as the container for my garden, soil, seeds and even coco-chips to use at the bottom of the bag for drainage. All I have to do is to follow the instructions!

In goes the tiny seeds….

Wrapping it up to start the germination process.

5 days later – there are things happening under the plastic…big water droplet!

9 days later – I SEE GREEN!!! There are about 6 or 7 little sprouts so far, off comes the plastic wrap. Can’t wait for the harvest time in a month. I’m already trying to figure out how I’m going to use all my mint, it’s all very exciting!

  1. This is super cool! Thanks so much for sharing. When I have some extra cash, I’m definitely going to order a few. Should make great gifts. One or two could brighten up little apartment too. 🙂

  3. You should use the mint to make tabooli! And dry the leaves for kick-ass home-grown peppermint tea ^^ Actually there are so many things you can do with mint, and best part is, you don’t have to have a very green thumb because it grows like weeds! I used to have a small herb-garden all of my own when I grew up, I dug it out and everything on my own, had maybe 10-15 varieties of herbs in there, it was my pride and joy 🙂 Try growing cress too when you get a chance, grows fast, gets pretty and tastes awesome in salads ^^

    • Omg, I have already made a list of things I can make with my mints…I love your idea with the peppermint tea! It’s going to be so good.
      I’m jealous of your herb garden, I’m going to expand mine a little bit at a time. Next on my list is a little tomato garden and maybe chives! Love chives!
      I’ll post more pictures as I grow more plants!
      Thanks for your great ideas and comment!
