Growing indoors in the winter? A good idea!
The holidays are almost over and January is just around the corner. You may be glad that these messy weeks are over and you are back to your old rhythm, but we can also imagine that you’re not exactly looking forward to the coming grey months. Compared to the December month full of lights and holidays, January and February can quickly feel gloomy and unsociable. Many people suffer from a somewhat lowered mood or even a winter dip during these months.
Indoor vegetable gardening may not be the first activity you think of to get through these dark months, but this is definitely a nice activity, especially in winter! With our PlantHome indoor vegetable garden you can grow your own fresh vegetables and herbs indoors. You can then cook a tasty healthy meal with your home-grown vegetables and herbs. A big advantage of eating fresh vegetables and herbs is that they contain a relatively large amount of vitamin C. Vitamin C supports your immune system and is therefore extra valuable during the cold months.
Indoor vegetable gardening is not only great when you want to eat healthier, but can also be a very nice activity for the dark days. Many people often feel a bit lifeless and listless in the winter and do not feel like undertaking activities. Maintaining your own indoor vegetable garden can be a nice activity that you can do in the comfort of your own home. Not only do you enjoy yourself, but you also get a reward in the form of home-grown vegetables or herbs!
A major cause of the gloomy feeling that many people suffer from during the winter months is a lack of daylight. Especially in the months of November to February, it will regularly happen that you not only go out in the dark, but also come home in the dark. When the recommended setting is used, the PlantHome light will burn for no less than 20 hours a day. The PlantHome can therefore provide just that little bit of extra light during the day during the winter months! Although this light does not have the same effect as the lamps used in light therapy to treat a winter dip, it can certainly provide a warmer and more pleasant atmosphere in the house.
