Its mid-March here in the mountains, and we’re about two weeks into the Russian invasion of Ukraine. But, we are not a news site at Tub to Table. Here, we are just an indoor gardening site.

Her garden was a raging success on her very first try. Oh, and she also…Read More
This one is really coming down to the wire. Every vote is going to need to be counted before we will know if the indoor carrots or the outdoor-grown carrots look better. Oh wait, no, it isn’t. Sorry…I was thinking of something else.
Nope, this one wasn’t a close race at all. Grown with the same seeds and the same soil, the outdoor carrots ended up…Read More

Here at Tub to Table, we are all about gardening in the Great Indoors. We converted a spare bathroom into an indoor bathtub garden and have been gardening exclusively indoors for about 4 years.
