ohuhu garden kneeler

1. Ohuhu Garden Kneeler and Seat with 2 Bonus Tool Pouches

I need this is my garden.  As much as I love gardening, it can be hard on my back and knees.  This beauty easily transitions from a garden chair to a kneeling pad with supports, and is lightweight enough to carry around the garden.  The pockets for tools are just a nice bonus!  You can find yours here.

 


air plants2. Air Plants – 10 pack

Air plants are fun and easy to grow.   They don’t require soil, only need a little bit of light, and don’t need to be watered more than once a week. They are perfect for terrariums and hanging planters. Pinterest is full of ideas for how to use them in your space and I think it would be fun to create some of those projects myself this winter.  You can find yours here.

 


drunken botanist3. The Drunken Botanist

I love learning about interesting plants, and would like to kick back in my hammock chair this winter with a few good books about them.  This book promises some interesting tidbits about the plants that create our favorite drinks.  You can find yours here.

 


psychadelic salad kit4. Psychedelic Salad Kit

Now that the garden is put to bed for winter, I haven’t been eating enough salads.  It is a 25 minute drive for me to get to the grocery store.  Since I don’t plan on driving to town just for lettuce, I have decided to start growing my salad fixins indoors this winter.  It would be fun to brighten up the winter months with the colorful veggies included in this kit: yellow lemon cucumbers, red lettuce, orange beets, purple onions, and purple, white, and red radishes.  I love that it comes with peat pots, soil and labels too!  You can find yours here.

 


garden genie gloves5. Garden Genie Gloves with Claws 

I’m always digging in the soil with my hands because I don’t always have a garden trowel handy.  These gloves look like they would make the job a little easier.  You can find yours here.

 


mushroom farm6. Back to the Roots Organic Mushroom Farm

I would like to start cultivating my own edible mushrooms here on our homestead next fall, and I think this would be a fun way to introduce myself to a new skill and get a couple of meals in the process.  Plus I can use all the vitamin D I can get this winter.  You can find yours here.

 


garden tool set7. 9 Piece Garden Tool Set 

I usually carry a bunch of tools under my arm or throw them in the wheelbarrow when I’m working around our property.  This looks more convenient to me than my current system, and I love that the bag also acts as a tote for whatever else I need to take with me.  You can find yours here.

 


aerogarden

8. AeroGarden Harvest Elite

I love growing herbs on my kitchen counter and this is a stylish and portable way to do it.  It is a hydroponic system, so you grow your plants in water instead of soil.  If you have never grown hydroponically, this is an easy way to introduce yourself to it.  It comes in 4 finishes: stainless steel, copper, platinum and red.  You can grow 6 plants at at time and it comes with a 20 watt LED light. It even comes with seeds to get you started: Genovese basil, Thai basil, curly parsley, dill, thyme, and mint.  You can find yours here.

 


bonsai9. Nature’s Blossom Bonsai Garden Seed Starter Kit

Now that I know they exist, I pretty much have to have a purple bonsai tree.  In every room of my house. And the kit comes with enough supplies for me to grow 4 of them!  You can find yours here.

 


coloring book10. Mindful Succulents Coloring Book

I’m a little obsessed with the idea of hygge, creating the feeling of warmth and coziness during the cold winter months.  I envision myself curling up under a blanket with a hot cup of tea, this coloring book, and some colored pencils on a snowy afternoon.  You can find yours here.

    1. I used to kill everything I touched. Who knows? Try something simple like air plants and maybe you’ll fall in love with gardening like I did. 🙂

    1. The aerogarden is a great introduction to gardening without soil. There may be a slight learning curve when it comes to mixing nutrients, but I bet you can do it!

    1. Thanks Marcela. I used to kill all of my plants too. Just had to learn a few key things to be successful, especially about soil and how to water properly. Don’t give up yet!
