Remember when I planted an herb garden a few weeks ago? Well it’s only been about 10 days, and my little plants are already sprouting!


I got so excited, I went into work this week telling everyone that “my herbs are sprouting!” I’m sure no one cares, but this is exciting!

Right now, my Dill is out of control! It’s growing like a weed an herb!

But I left it outside today, and a few of them seem to have fallen over and died?! Are they supposed to fall over? Help! How do you get them to stand upright? Do they need more water?

The Basil is also coming up nice! It looks like little baby basils!

And the parsley has just popped up too. It’s so cute!

Keep crossing your fingers!!!!


Please Grow. March 3, 2011

My mom gave me an herb garden for my birthday….two and a half years ago! And I’m just NOW getting around to planting it. Sad, I know. But honestly, I was (and still am) afraid. I have a horrible history of killing plants, and I really really really don’t want to screw this up. But I did my research and finally decided to get real and at least give it a try.

The kit came with a ton of different seeds, but I decided to take it a little at a time and try a few basic ones first. I’m trying Basil, Chives, Thyme, Parsley and Dill.

I followed the directions exactly and soaked my seeds overnight. (Is this how you soak them? Who even knows if I sabotaged my baby herbs before they were even born!)

The kit came with soil pellets that looked like little brown discs.

But after soaking in water for five minutes, they exploded!

Into a whole tray of moist soil. I planted them last week, but I didn’t want to post it on the blog in case they never sprouted. But I’m happy to say that I saw my first seedling today!

I’m not quite sure if that is chives or thyme, but its green and it’s alive!!! I’m a proud mama. But I need a little help… doesn’t that look like mold around the base of the green one?

What do I do if it IS mold? Oh man, this is so stressful!
