so, about this whole herb garden thing...
i posted a few weeks/months ago about planting my first herb garden. as i am a notorious plant killer this has been quite an undertaking. but- i'm happy to report to you that my plants have not died. ...yet. let's not jinx things.
this is what i started with:
which i then cleaned up to this:
i've documented a bit of the growing along the way, twitter has been getting regular gardening updates:
and here we are, today:
the cilantro is a little enthusiastic, to say the least.
i guess over excited is better than... dead. anyone know any good cilantro recipes?
i've even had to transplant some of the overflow to pots. i couldn't stand to just throw them away after all this work.
i'm not really sure what's going on with these scallions, they seem to be at a growing standstill. are they going to get bigger?
my most very favorite, the soft velvety leaves of sage.
the basil is finally coming into it's own. i was a little worried about it for a while. the whole area is starting to smell delicious.
the oregano has been the worst, it only just sprouted this week. stupid slow tiny oregano.
the parsley is about to go the way of the cilantro i think. which means we will have WAY too much of it.
did you know all you need to do to grow your own garlic is plant a peeled bulb? i had no idea.
hot peppers in the making. jon will be pleased. i will be sad.
so, this is a lot of pictures of my plants. sorry to bore you. but dudes! i'm excited! they're alive! i can put them into my foods! we've been consuming burritos and quesadillas with cilantro all week!
it doesn't take much to make me happy, can you tell?
now someone mail me a tomato plant, asap please!
