Having grass seed on hand can be helpful for a few reasons. For instance, you never know when you may have to add a little grass seed to a patch of bare soil on your lawn. Just rough up the ground a little and lay it down. Water it thoroughly and cover it with a bit of straw to protect it from hungry birds. It can be also helpful to buy seed varieties that fit your lawn's needs, especially if you happen to have a lawn that gets a lot of shade during the day.
Caring for houseplants has been proven to be good for you. Research shows that taking care of plants can increase your sense of well-being and reduce stress. Houseplants provide a feeling of connectedness to the outdoors. Plants increase the awareness that we share the earth with more than just other humans. Everything in nature plays a role in our survival. Having plants in the home can serve as a constant reminder of our connections with the rest of the natural world.
Winter weather can certainly precipitate symptoms of cabin fever, the doldrums, the winter blues. Gardeners know that plants can help relieve those feelings. Who doesn't enjoy seeing colorful blooms during the gray days of winter? Scientists agree that houseplants likely improve mood by reducing stress, increasing pain tolerance, and lessening physical discomfort. Why? Possibly because plants simply make a room more lively and appealing. Indoor contact with nature can provide the same natural relaxation we experience outdoors. This phenomenon is called biophilia, a love of nature, and architects have designed buildings around the concept.
You can grow microgreens in any clear flat with decent drainage. Salad mix containers from the grocery store work really well, as they come with drainage holes already cut and produce a decent crop of microgreens. I use whatever containers I have at hand. Both clear and opaque contains work, and some gardeners use seedling flats to get larger crops.
