This is what we did on Saturday, and by we, I mean my husband.
I'll give you a minute to finish squealing.
Now that you've got yourself back together--isn't it lovely? This is the future home of my vegetable garden! We've ordered all the plants and seeds and are now just waiting for the last frost date to pass and then we'll get started!
My black thumb is slowly healing and is currently a lovely shade of purpley-yellowish. I expect it to be fully green by the time my plants arrive. I've even been practicing in my windowsill!
I found the little basil and parsley containers at IKEA. I think they were about a buck-fifty each, but I can't remember. The parsley in the green pot was purchased at the grocery store and then transplanted into the little pot. I can never seem to use up a sprig of parsley before it spoils, so I thought I'd try buying a plant and snipping some off when I need it. Seems to be working okay so far!
I also have a container that I'm going to plant herbs in and keep up on my deck for easy access. I can't wait to show you all the progress!!
Have I told you I'm a complete novice at this whole gardening thing? I'm terrified that the plants will arrive when my husband is out of town! I don't have the foggiest idea of what to do with the plants and the seeds once they arrive...
SO if you are a gardener, make sure you let me know in the comments so I can bug you when I have a question!
