More Herbs!

I've been enjoying container gardening, and it has begun to take over our porch.

I decided that one cannot have too much basil (yes, it's a sickness), so I potted two more basil plants. It smells lovely, and makes the porch feel more cozy.

I'm also attempting to grow some herbs from seeds. But as you can see, I haven't had much luck. Out of like fifty seeds, one measly dill seedling has sprung up. I think he's getting lonely.

Then there are the rosemary cuttings on the window sill in the kitchen, which seem to be faring better than the seeds. I cut off the bottom half of each cutting's leaves, and plopped them in water, and voilĂ ! I'll let them grow for a few more weeks, and then plant them in pots.


  1. You inspire me. I can't grow basil for some reason, and my rosemary plants always seem to mysteriously keel over on me. :o( I've got some new clippings out on the patio now. We'll see how it goes...

  2. I'm jealous--of the sunshine and of your outdoor space. Being an urban Northeast girl doesn't give me much of either.

  3. Tubetone - That's awesome! Let me know how they turn out.

    Urban Vegan - I think it's time for you to move :)
