The weather is still nice and our garden is still growing, but fall is just around the corner. We need to think and prep for the best. If you are looking to grow something simple, but more beneficial than ornamental flowers try a small herb garden. Some of the best herbs to grow indoors are basil, chives, rosemary, bay, and sage. If you already have some of these in your garden make sure to dig it up and save it before winter comes along.
However, if you are starting fresh consider trying a hydroponic herb garden this time. All that is required for this would be Hydrorock clay pebbles; instead of using potting soil. Of course water, sunlight, and temperature are still required for growing. Hydroponic gardening may reduce pest that comes around your plants because no soil is being used. A recent tip I learned to give organic nutrients to hydroponic plants is through a method call compost tea. All you need to do is wrap some compost in a coffee filter and submerge it in water and let it dissolve all the nutrients into the water! This will ensure that your plants are getting the nutrients it needs, but make sure to not over water your plants!
