I’m so excited. I started my first herb garden today. We have a new Lowe’s in my neighborhood, so I took my 10% off coupon with me and picked up a 6 pack of Trailing Rosemary and several hanging basket liners. All for the low, low price of $13.75.
Next stop. The grocery store. I needed some fresh thyme for a new recipe I was trying out for dinner. While I was checking out the herbs in the produce section, I noticed they sold Living Herbs in plastic containers. It struck me, if the herbs have roots, I should be able to harvest the tops for cooking and plant the rooted plug to grow my own herbs. Cost: 2 for $5.00. I chose the thyme and chives.
I was so happy, I rushed home, trimmed them, then planted them up. And Voila, instant herb garden.
Soon, I’ll start my vegetable garden. I can hardly wait. Last fall, my husband built me a raised garden bed and I’ve been very anxious to plant vegetables in it ever since. Unfortunately, my grandsons have taken it over and are playing with their cars and trucks in it. Evidently, it makes a great sandbox. I may have to section an area off for myself.
No matter, I’m just itching to get started.
I’ve also been toying with the idea of getting a chicken or two. My husband is not on board with this idea yet, but I’m working on it. (don’t tell him, kids)
