Since my entire garden was destroyed by last weeks intense winds in La, i have nothing as of now :-( The mushroom would be a fun we to begin again!

----- Christian 15.12.11 09:04

we tried mushrooms … but didn’t have success. I need to plant some chard and kale. we do tomatoes in the summertime.

----- Matthew Wettergreen 14.12.11 09:15

Cherries

----- Jali 14.12.11 08:30

I’m growing the potential to learn and experience from trying new things. I have a avocado tree I started from a seed this year. My garden thrived this summer and I’m already thinking what new and interesting things to try for next. Sadly none of the lettuce greens, tomato, pepper plants, dark leafy greens are wanting to grow for me indoors over the winter. Might just have to stick to sprouts and microgreens.

----- Meghan W. 14.12.11 07:11

Jalapeno pepper plants

----- Tris 13.12.11 22:26

I like growing basil plants! Basil tastes amazing on just about everything…also I have an orange tree in my backyard.

----- Kendra 13.12.11 20:39

At the moment I work on growing my self in grad school. But I use to have a beautiful garden full of herbs like Basil, Luiza and mint. I left it behind for know, trad it for school, but I will be back to my little garden.

----- Stav 13.12.11 19:46

I’ve kept well away from homegrown anything since my wife and I made a disastrous batch of some kind of Hungarian (?) hangover cure called Nalewka Babuni, made with copious berries, vodka, and Vitamin C supplements. It was a mess, and it tasted like death. But designing the labels for our bottles sure was fun!

----- Greg 13.12.11 19:29

Everything I had planted my dogs ate, except my chives and mint

----- Tony F 13.12.11 18:32

rosemary and lavender. I use them in everything - pastas, breads, cookies, cocktails - so I figured I might as well cut out the middle man and just have them constantly on deck.

----- Allie 13.12.11 18:01

Right now, I’m growing yeast in my sourdough starter, which has made some really tasty bread. And I just got some potting soil and will get some microgreens growing. Woohoo!

----- Lex 13.12.11 14:01

I’m growing herbs!! for making pasta.

----- Amanda 13.12.11 12:55

We’re not growing anything outside at the moment with winter on its way. All the plants have been brought inside until spring, but we grow cucumbers, peppers, and tomatoes every year (to list only a few things). Since it is so cold out I have been doing things with terrariums, mainly using recycled glass bottles to grow different kinds of moss from the garden. I would love to try my hand at growing mushrooms with one of these kits too!

----- Patrick Flaherty 13.12.11 12:22

mint and ginger : all you need

----- eliot 13.12.11 11:46

still have parsley, rosemary, oregano, and thyme

----- jenni o 13.12.11 11:43

As of yet, I’m not growing anything. Wanna help fix that?

----- Jennifer 13.12.11 10:21

I grow sweet basil— I use the stuff frequently. And if not, it’s still nice to just rub the leaves and get the smell on your fingers. Mmmm~

----- Shauna B. 13.12.11 10:14

If deliciousness can be defined as precious cuteness then I’m growing a child and he’s already been mushroom hunting with me in the lovely forests of Mt. Hood National Park. We hope to continue this tradition as he grows so he can learn about Morels, Chanterelles, Hedgehogs, Boletus, Angel Wings, Lobster, Cauliflower mushrooms and all the other edibles Oregon has to offer. Growing some of our own could be the start of a whole new world of mushrooming!

----- Andrea 13.12.11 10:11

Since I live in Minnesota, all I can grow right now is a little herb garden with cilantro, rosemary, basil, parsley, and thyme!!

----- Nicole 13.12.11 09:25

We grow chili peppers. We eat it with every meal. There is nothing that can’t be enhanced with a little heat. Dessert included.

----- vu 13.12.11 09:05

I wish i could grow all those glorious and lovely herbs, but my weather doesnt allow it to happen =(

----- Kai 13.12.11 07:01

----- Nicole 12.12.11 18:45

I’m growing a few inches every week due to all these holiday cookies! Fresh mushrooms would be a great way to get back on track with healthy eating :)

----- Stephen 12.12.11 18:45

Sadly I am not growing anything. Aside from the occasional mold in the bread cabinet. When I tried to do one of these a few months ago nothing happened. Not a teeny tiny thing. No mushrooms for me. They offered to replace it if I sent pictures, but I had thrown it away by then, so, no pictures either.

----- Vicky 12.12.11 16:10

I start and save my own seeds because I LOVE gardening. And mushrooms. All mushrooms! But I’ve never grown them myself and would love to try! Especially for free. call me. XO

Our deliciousness was tomato and squash but we just had our first freeze and even covered, it is no more

----- erastos 12.12.11 11:35

I’m growing so much these days it is just astounding! I’m growing myself as a person through not only the last final stretch of my undergraduate education, but also through this amazing thing called LIFE! I’m helping people around me grow and discover as much as I possibly can. In the more literal sense I’m keeping my kombucha cultures growing along with my favorite little houseplant that I found almost dead one day. I had an affinity with this plant, I felt like the plant looked, so I vowed to save it. We’ve been best friends ever since and Sam and I are both alive and well today! Love love love!!

----- Erica Jean 12.12.11 11:29

I don’t have a garden, but eventually I’ll grow my own herbs. Just haven’t gotten around to it yet…

----- Rachel Bain 12.12.11 10:56

Right now we have a huge crop of satuma’s coming in which is leading to an abundance of satuma-bourbon marmalade, satuma-cello and right off the branch, juicy-deliciousness. On a much smaller scale, the grapefruit are just about ready to be picked. Oh yeah — brussel sprouts too.

----- raymond 12.12.11 10:53

High rise apartments in the northern hemisphere don’t make for good food growing. I take my food scraps to the farmers market for composting and buy what the local farmers grow. I only grow non-food plants.

----- lauren 12.12.11 10:51

----- Jessica J. 12.12.11 10:05

Oregano on my balcony, because it’s the only herb that’s had what it takes to survive the snow.

----- Laura 12.12.11 09:58

Was gonna make a PB&J sandwich for breakfast…family of mold has moved into my bread bag…can’t decide whether to evict them or wait for the penicillins to illegally sublet.

I live in the city so only a small balcony, but I like to grow my own herbs

----- sarah 12.12.11 04:31

Although I’m growing rosemary, sage, basil, cherry tomatoes, chives, wild garlic and lavender, what I’m really growing is happiness in my inner garden! The seeds are called gratitude I believe, and it comes from this phrase I read “It’s not happy people that are grateful, it’s grateful people that are happy.” (:

----- Vera 12.12.11 03:30

I’m growing (or killing, depends on how you look at it) basil in a jar in the kitchen.

----- Lizz 11.12.11 19:50

The only delicious (and edible) thing that I have been growing is rosemary. Not very original, and I will admit, it is more of a barely sustaining sort of thing, as I tend to work well with plants that are left to their own devices. -_-;;

----- Lisa 11.12.11 19:30
