|Primulas in bloom!|
You may recall that one of the nesting adventures I invited you to join me on was planting a garden. Said garden was planned for our old house, where we were allowed to dig in the backyard. Once we decided to move, a traditional garden plot went out the window, at least for this year. However, my heart is set on gardening, so I have decided to do what I can with what I have: I will have a container garden. In a couple of decorative containers gathered on my patio, I will be able to grow tomatoes, salad greens, and herbs.
And so to prepare for my container garden, today I planted some herbs. I had purchased a Jiffy mini-greenhouse complete with peat pellets, and some friends had given me some herb seeds, so tonight after supper I headed downstairs to get started.

They're going to need all the help they can get.

A few of my friends have been starting tomatoes and herbs from seed, and they have been photographing their progress. So I am going to join in and photograph my herby little charges and keep you up to date on the progress of my "garden." I promise to be honest, and if my not-so-green thumbs strike again, you'll be sure to know. In the meantime, please send good vibes to my newest little buddies, Mr. Chives, Miss Rosemary, and Ol' Sweet Basil, as well as the two slips of ivy I'm trying to get to root!
