One of the items on my list, #14, was to plant and maintain an herb garden. I was so excited to let you know that I can now cross it off my list, but I kinda forgot how ambitious I was - not only did I say I wanted to plant one, but I said I wanted to maintain it for a full year and only use herbs from that garden. Wowzers! Well, fine, I can't quite cross it off my list yet, but I can say I'm working on #14.
3/22/09: Seeds are in, soil is watered....grow herbs grow!
In their new home, the basement window ledgeWe have cilantro, chives, thyme....
....basil, parsley, and marjoram
4/7/09: Holy Shnikes, my seeds are....growing!!I was so proud of myself when these starting growing. I gave myself a little woot! woot! that's right, I'm an herb growing stud, while doing that little churning butter move. You know the one, right?
And then I did what I always do. I forgot to water them. I suck at growing plants! So last week when I took the little dome cover off I saw more brown than green and more droop then....then what? Stiff? That's funny. I'm so imature I can not say stiff without laughing. Anyway, I dumped some water on them and LOOK!!
5/8/09: Woot! Woot! I'm an herb growing genius! (doin' the butter churn)
Now, if I can just remember to water these guys...I.."m hoping to transplant them and move them outside soon. I'll keep you posted.
Also, I'm working on the next installment of my list.
