I know we’re a bit behind the curve, but Jesse and I really wanted to plant a garden this year. It’s too late in the season for most planting and to be 100% honest, I really don’t think we’ll have time this year. But that doesn’t mean I can’t have a few fresh herbs and some flowers right? We bought the seeds a few weeks ago and I finally got around to planting them this week! We used these cool little planters that are decomposable to make things easier for transplanting when the plants get big. For now I only planted two herbs and one type of flower, but maybe I’ll do some more later on. Parsley and basil are supposed to be two herbs that you can really tell the difference between fresh and dried, so those are the two we picked to plant. Echinacea, or coneflower, is Jesse’s favorite type of flower. It’ll be nice for him to finally have a plant that he can smile at as it blooms like I do with the hydrangeas and day lillies 🙂 I didn’t make any fancy little labels for my planters yet, but I plan on doing something creative when they get larger and I transplant them. For now I went super creative and did this. Aren’t you overwhelmed by how amazingly creative that label is?! 😉 It gets more
ghetto creative! I placed my planters in various kitchen containers, so that I could water them from below like my friend Kristen at Popcorn on the Stove. All of my plants and flowers always get placed in the big bay window in our dining room when I get them and they always thrive, so I figured that would be the best place for my little seedlings for now. We shall see how they do! I’ll keep you guys informed on whetheror not I get any sprouts! I really can’t wait to use some fresh herbs in my cooking! 🙂
Have you done any planting this year? Do you have a garden or potted plants?
