Basement Garden

November 24, 2009


As part of our ever evolving plan to survive the zombie apocalypse, we have been experimenting with growing food in the basement. You may recall that the last growing food in the basement experiment didn’t exactly take off. So for this experiment, we simply decided to sit around and wait for something to start growing on its own. Which, if you have plenty of time, (we do not expect an actual zombie apocalypse until next August) seems like the best way to get things to grow.

Where is it getting water?

We are currently waiting for some herbs and a dairy cow to grow in the basement, then we will dine on French Onion Soup.

    Honestly, that is the best-looking thing we’ve ever grown. We should put all our plants in the basement and never get around to cooking them. Think how they’d bloom!

    That is a beautiful looking plant! I like it. And I think you’re on to something…all our plants in the frig. We you could make a nice glass frig door & viola…everyone could see the inside of of friges. Never mind.
