It’s Not Easy Growing Greens

Now wait, what’s that in the corner?

It’s our solution to growing leafy greens in this unbearable Texas heat, of course!

We turned our empty kitchen wall into something deliciously useful by mounting self-watering window boxes onto this cheap-o shelf.  And the grow lights?  Full spectrum bulbs that have a light output of around 1450 lumens do the trick.

(You’ll have to find your own handy spouse who can rig up the pulley system.)

We’re going to have some serious salad come August.
