Remember a few weeks ago how I told you I was sent some Miracle-Gro Gro-ables pods?
Do you remember me also telling you how, in the past, I kill anything green within a 5 mile radius? Well my luck has changed my friends!
I have actually kept something alive for over a month now! Not only is it alive, it is thriving, and it couldn’t have been easier! Miracle-Gro Gro-ables are a a pre-packaged seed pod that makes it incredibly easy to grow your own herbs and veggies from seed.
This video from Miracle-Gro shows how simple planting is
I got these cute little painted pails in Target’s Dollar Spot section. I drilled some holes in the bottom of them so that they could drain. I then found some chalkboard stickers at Michael’s, which I put on the front of the pails to label them.
I then put in a layer of potting soil, and then I simply placed my Gro-able right on top.
Seriously, even I could pull this one off. You make sure it gets proper sunlight and water. It’s that easy. Even better is that they are affordable ($1.29 – $1.49 per seed pod – depending on your market). I picked basil, globe tomatoes, and sweet peppers.
So many vegetables are sprayed with harmful chemicals, and I love that I will be feeding my family something that is more healthy (and grown by yours truly).
We try to go meat free at least one day per week. So we are big grilled cheese sandwich and tomato soup fans. I always add basil to my soup, and I am so excited to actually grow my own! Topher loves to put tomatoes in his omelets, so he is looking forward to harvesting those.
Even though Gro-Ables are guaranteed to grow (when used as directed) with my black thumb I was skeptical. So when I looked into my pods and saw my little sprouts growing I was super excited!
This Sprout It Website has a wealth of information about what pods to grow for what type of garden you want to grow.
If you have any great recipes that include either sweet peppers, basil or tomatoes please leave me the recipe down below!
