can grow herbs inside, acorns, c2rc2

you can grow may herbs inside during the winter
just start with a good potting soil      one used here is
the lady bug brand of potting soils     it is organic and
works well

the herbs have to be in a bright window or under a
these can be moved outside in the spring when the
weather is warmer

herbs easily grown inside are basil, rosemary(commonly
sold as table christmas trees), chives, mint, oregano,
parsley, sage, thyme, and aloe vera

we keep several of these growing at our house and
just move them out on to the deck later in the spring

what do do with all of those acorns from the oaks
many people with a lot of oaks in their yard have this

acorns can be planted in pots with good organic
potting soil      do this every  year and plant the
new oaks in my yard

they can be placed in the compost pile as a good
source of protein       also can crush them first as
they will break down quicker

they can be just left where they are and the animals
insects and bacteria and fungi will eat them
our dogs eat them
they are mildly toxic but  a person or animal would have to
eat a lot to get ill

or just let the squirrels plant them for you and enjoy
the new oak trees

until next time
