Always Something To Celebrate Here in the Mansion

hi friends ~  

Today I am celebrating this wonderful raw life. RFR is celebrating 18 months, I am celebrating 10 months of high raw living- and  I am reflecting on the daily blessings of this wonderful community. No matter what my mood or my mode, I can check in to the 'hab and find something wonderful to inspire and ignite my fresh perspective. Sometimes I just stop by to look at the new pictures folks have posted. I can find a recipe, or a method of food preparation and learn each day.

I can read your stories of courage, healing, and vibrant well-being to remind me of why I stepped onto this path and continue to commit to it wholeheartedly!  

This week I became obsessed, possessed with the urge to grow my own veggies. I live in a ground floor apartment under a house, mostly shady and with no useable ground  to dig in - it's all landscaped with rockery and such.


But I did not let that deter me - not a Raw Goddess like ME! :-))    I browsed various ideas and solutions in the Garden Room here in the Unit, and got so inspired by the urban gardening solutions -




when there is a will there is definitely a way.


If some brilliant person can create a hanging garden out of upside down soda bottles suspended from a rack on an urban landing - well certainly I can find a way for my little greens to grow chez moi. Encouraged and inspired





I decided to go for it and purchase an Earth Box that I'd seen on-line (found one in my neighborhood nursery) this is a self watering fully contained kit for garden growing in small spaces.

Then I saw the genius idea for Vertical Gardening - using a canvas shoe storage thingy for growing herbs and lettuce. I have just the right location and light for my little hanging garden. With room to spare ! wow - instant garden - greens galore for future smoothies.

 I am so grateful to have discovered this wonderful community and all that we share. Keep Rawkin' it! I trust that we'll all find something to celebrate today!

If you do regular sowings, you can keep fresh baby greens growing for months.

This is the most creative indoor garden I've ever seen! This takes no space! Very impressive... Show us the pix when the veggies get bigger!

Oh my goodness, I am so inspired by that you've done!!!  I live in the hot, dry desert of Phoenix area, and I have been bemoaning the fact that it would be so much harder to grow veggies than it was in my native New England.  But you have me thinking out of the box now!  I'm going to start searching online myself.  There must be similar creative ways to grow things in the desert without installing a huge involved watering system!  Great job and thanks for sharing your garden with us!!
