Day 96 of Firsts: Plant a Potted Herb Garden

5 Apr

The greatest gift of the garden is the restoration of the five senses. ~Hanna Rion

I have never really had a lot of success with growing things, especially things that aren’t flowers.

I must admit, I’ve never given it much of my attention either.

What has my attention at the moment is every time I buy fresh herbs at the store, I use about 25 cents worth and the rest goes bad in my refrigerator.

No more, I say. I am going to grow my own. Okay, I’m going to try to grow my own.

This will be my first real little potted herb garden. I’m hoping to plant rosemary and thyme too. Maybe some mint.

I picture myself (wanna be gourmet cook that I am) casually taking a step out of my kitchen to get some fresh basil for some fab recipe.

Now I have to remember to water the plants. That’s always been a bit of a challenge for me.

So, we’ll see how my little herb garden grows.

Any tips, thoughts?
