I like to keep some of my potted plants going through the winter. There is something satisfying about having something green to care for in a frozen land.
This geranium gives a double gift by continuing to bloom and has that special odor that shouts summer! to my brain.
The rosemary in the foreground does surprisingly well in my cool basement. I love running my fingers through the aromatic stems. The pepper plants in the background probably won't do much at this temperature, but I already had them in pots so couldn't resist bringing them inside.
The cost of fresh greens is outrageous in the store so my Aerogardens are used all winter. It's not a lot, especially compared to an outside garden, but it's growing and sometimes that's enough to make it worthwhile.
