Growing Plants in an RV

Growing Plants in an RV

When people make the transition from a house with a yard to a RV, many miss their plants and gardens. What some don’t realize is that it is possible to live fulltime on the road with plants. You simply grow smaller plants in pots or hanging baskets. In our RV, we use pots.

Near our kitchen sink, we have a Venus Fly Trap and a Peace Lily. I have noticed a decrease in gnats or other bugs. Also the Peace Lily purifies our air. There is a noticable difference in our air quality since bringing it home.
Try one or more of these to keep your air purified in your RV.
We keep an Aloe Vera plant beside our bathroom sink. We cut a section off when we need to treat burns.

When we are traveling, we stick these small potted plants in the sink. What about growing a graden? We actually have a small garden growing in our bedroom. When traveling, we stick these pots on the toilet room floor or in the shower.

Our garden for this year is just starting out. When the plants get bigger, I will start taking them outside to soak up some direct sun while we are parked in one spot. For now they enjoy plenty of sun through the window. I have to rotate these throughout the day so they grow straight.
I taped extra seeds and instructions on the wall nearby. We have pots for mixed greens, small tomatoes, mini mixed peppers, green onions, and cilantro. I can’t wait to watch these grow!

If you RV, do you have plants in your rig? If you live in a house with no yard, do you have a potted garden on a patio, window sill, or counter? Don’t forget to follow my blog to keep up with our journey.

Hiking 4 Miles!

Hiking 4 Miles!

Today was an amazing day for me. We returned to Forever Wild Trails to hike. This is the place that started it all for me on December 3rd. I knew I needed to lose weight. I was tired of being out of breathe all the time and struggling just to hold my 27 lb toddler for more than a few minutes at a time. It was amazing to return there and hike 4 miles with my family in 1.5 hours. 

Today we hiked the level 6 trail and December 3rd, I was only able to hike a level 3 trail, short of breath most the time. Today I actually was able to hike with Evan on my shoulders for 48 minutes (off and on, of course)! I was so excited about that because just last week, I could only hike that same trail with Evan for 15 minutes. 

I WILL hit my weight goal of 150 lbs because I am worth being healthy and in shape!

I can feel my strength building and I just want to keep going. I have lost 4.4 lbs so far and I can’t wait to see more fall off! I can’t believe I am up to 32 miles walked so far! It has been amazing. I have goals and one is to be a runner in a marathon! It seems far away now but I will get there!
