A Green Thumb

Following the theme of my previous post, this one is for my friend (and Rach's sister) Jess. This is mostly because I'm always amazed at how she can plant anything in the smallest space. Seriously, you could walk out of her townhouse door and onto her little pathway and eat herbs right out of her containers scattered along the walkway. I've hemmed and hawed over wanting to plant something so I finally decided to take a page from Nike and "just do it". So to Jess' amazement I'm sure: I planted my very own herb garden! It was pretty fun at first but I don't like dirt it turns out so about halfway through, I was done. But I stuck with it and even made cute little name signs. So here is my beautiful garden! Are you proud Jess?? I do have to say that cooking will be much more fun now that I don't have to run to the store everytime I decide to make a recipe with an herb I don't have!

I'm SO proud!!! I know everyone thought I was quirky for having all my pots of plants everywhere but it really is so tasty having fresh herbs and the house looks so much more cheerful with pretty flowers outside!

BTW, that basil is going to outgrow that pot in no time and take over. Get it its own pot and don't over water it!

Oh, and don't ever plant mint with anything else and don't let it trail on the ground, especially on a sidewalk. That stuff is crazy like a weed and really hard to get rid of once it gets established and it can grow in between cracks of pavement and tear it up.
