    That's awesome! I've been working in my kitchen herb garden this year. I've really been enjoying the fresh herb scents that are starting to fill my kitchen.

    This week we ate from the basement twice. The first time, I harvested all the pea shoots, breaking them off just above the lowest leaves, as instructed. They were yummy and the plants are growing back. I planted more peas and I think I'll do a whole flat with a combination of peas and lettuce. Mid week I harvested lettuce and kale (there's lots left) and we had a lovely salad. The carrots have sprouted and I'm thinning them out as they come up. It will be really interesting to see what comes of them.

    Everything looks great. Keep us posted on your basement garden. :)

    How about Urban Basement Farm?! I had planned to grow lettuce in the basement over the winter but, thanks to Urban Farm for suggesting additional things I could grow inside I have lettuce and kale and peas. I have planted some carrots which have not sprouted yet. That should be interesting if they grow. Anyway, with the grow light I bought last spring everything besides the carrots is growing quickly.
