Well…everybody said it would happen. And it is. Before I started paying attention to my diet, I didn’t own a plant. But now the little WINDOW GARDEN I started a few weeks back is quickly expanding to the capacity of my extremely SMALL apartment.
It’s hard not to do though. I keep coming across these herbs that I MUST have. Plus, the weather is nice now. So I can keep some plants on the windowsill.
So far, I have oregano, peppermint, thyme, dill, spearmint, rosemary, and basil.
I’m most proud of the basil because I grew these babies from little seedlings. The rest I kind of cheated at the farmer’s market, but the basil seeds I got while I was in Austin in March. They look so good that as you can see, the birds are starting to eat the leaves. Why do they have to pick the biggest juiciest ones? Save some for me!
I also got this interesting rainbow shrub. I’m not sure what it is, but it sure is pretty. Yesterday, I went crazy and planted a couple cherry seeds from the cherries I was eating. I’ll keep you posted on what happens with those…
