Mini Greenhouse March 22nd, 2012

          ^^^Look what’s growing in my backyard….made it through the winter. 🙂

 

 

 ^^^What the hell is this?  My neighbors yards are taking over by it and they’re                starting to grow in mine too.  I sure hope that I can eat it!

 

^^^I dug this out of the shed.  I’ve been meaning to put it up since last year, but with having room mates and not enough space, I never got around to it.

 

 

 

 

^^^ For once I have something that is truly “plug and play”.  No tools needed. 🙂
No cleaning got done today.  I had too much other stuff to take care of.  Well, it’s okay….it’s not like I’m on some kind of schedule to get it done.
I cooked some rice and tomato with meat sauce.  Have had the fan on full blast upstairs all morning.  Cleaned the ceiling fan and of course I lost some of the screws that go into the blades.  Planted some carrot seeds and put them in my little green house.  Now, I’m going to look and see what I did with the rest of my seeds.

here's some more info on dead nettle:"Purple Dead Nettle is a favorite for bees and butterflies, who find abundance of nectar in its blossoms. Roots are fine and fibrous. Gather the fresh edible leaves and flowers when in bloom. Dry for later herb use.Properties: Edible and medicinal, the leaves and upper plants are cooked as pot herbs or added to salads. The plant is very nutritious, high in iron, vitamins and fiber. The whole plant is medicinal, used as an astringent, diaphoretic, diuretic, purgative, styptic and tonic. Lab tests show that Lamium purpureum seed oil possess high antioxidant activities, and might be used as a future food-additive. A decoction of the plant is particularly useful for checking any kind of hemorrhage, the fresh bruised leaves can be applied to external cuts and wounds. The dried herb, made into a tea and sweetened with honey, promotes perspiration and acts on the kidneys. A tea made from the fresh plant is an excellent laxative and tonic."so glad to see that you have your greenhouse set up – woohoo!
