Sorry to be MIA for so long -- both of us were unemployed and running out of funds, as well as holidays and getting prepared to be in a First Friday trunk show with my wares led to lack of updates. Sorry about that!

But anyway. I hope everyone had a good Thanksgiving! My relatives graciously allowed us to come to their house and they had even prepared an organic turkey, which I thought was fantastic.

I have decided that the front bedroom that we currently don't use is going to be an inside greenhouse, since we can't afford a real one yet. I just need to figure out what types of plants, and preferably food-bearing ones, that we can grow indoors. And then start making temporary planters and the like until we can afford to make real ones.

I think it will be really nice to have a room in the house producing its own oxygen! I'm tempted to make it be my new "office" once everything gets going a little.


  1. I'm not sure if it's at all useful but I did a mini aeroponics thing a bit ago and blogged about it:

    It turned out really well, but ultimately failed because we don't use that much basil or lettuce and I just kind of ignored it for weeks at a time.

    These folks were working on a large scale aeroponic system using garden foggers, which ultimately wasn't successful (yet) but is good reference material

  2. this sounds fascinating! I feature "studio tours" on my blog. If you'd like to show off your space, it would be a real treat

  3. I love that idea, of using the greenhouse room as an office. Now I just need to kick out two or three of my housemates to free up a bedroom so I too can have a greenhouse-office!

  4. I love your blog. :) Thanks for sharing!
