That sounds lovely! I really can't do windowsill pots - I live in a
basement which gets almost no sunlight and the windows are small.  I'm
doing my best to find work-arounds, like having an AeroGarden with its own
light, but my best bet is planting things outdoors. (And those poor
seedlings in the laundry room, which have probably figured out that their
mother, though caring, knows nothing.)

That sounds wonderful.

Isn't it wonderful how our plants can surprise us?
