A Frugal Salad on the Windowsill

Well, I did it. I just couldn't quit writing about frugal living.

Since there's been a little more time, I've been able to do more living than writing about frugal. To begin, I planted some lettuce in one of those oblong Nestle's Hot Chocolate Mix containers and it's up already... so I planted a few radishes to go with it.

I also planted celery. Yep... I cut a half inch or so from the bottom of a bunch of celery I'd bought and put it in one of those little plastic-y containers they give you sauces in at the fast food place. (No, I didn't go to the fast food place - my daughter used to work at a pizza place where they used them for garlic butter.) Anyway, the celery is taking root and has a cheery splotch of bright green leaves in its center.

I'll have at least a few very frugal salads before gardening season!

  5. I love this idea! I have herbs inside. Don't know why I never thought of lettuce!

  6. That is a great idea...I've been curious about indoor gardens for a long time...maybe I'll have to do something about that curiosity. :)

  7. Thanks to your old blog on About, I have garlic and onions growing on my kitchen windowsill! I will try celery.I am so glad that I have found your new blog. I was worried about you, I always checked your About page on a daily basis. I finally emailed Lee / with his freebies website. I wanted to help you out if you were not doing well. He said you were fine and gave me a link to your blog. I love it! I will check it daily. Best wishes. Laura the Happy Homemaker in NH
