    Thanks so much sis for your sharing. Can we do this indoors if we don’t have an outdoor area.

    • Shalom sissy and all praises to the Father for all works that bring Him glory. You can certainly plant some items indoors. As long as you have an area to set your plants that gets plenty of sunshine, you can certainly get this done! YouTube is a wonderful resource. Just put in the type of plant you want to grow indoors, and asks for a step-by-step tutorial to getting it done.
