Planting Early …….

 

My DIL, Carrie, gave me a ‘Herb Kit’ for Christmas.  I started the seeds about a month ago and they are sprouting like crazy.


PARSLEY

 



BASIL



The aromas are coming through loud and clear.  I’m especially waiting to use the fresh basil. 
I used to be a tad skeptic when I saw these kits… no longer!


THANKS FOR STOPPING BY…..

I love herbs growing in my kitchen!

I can't wait for the perennial herbs to start greening up outside. Maybe I will be a little more enthusiastic about cooking!

Cathy said...

Very sweet little pots, Barb. At first glance I thought you were sprouting shamrocks.

There is nothing like fresh herbs! I've tried growing them in the winter and they just don't like the low light conditions here. I can't wait to start mine.

How nice to have fresh herbs that you grew yourself! Love the pots, too! Still enjoying seeing little Gizmo...such a cutie! Happy week!...hugs...Debbie

That's one of those gifts that keeps on giving, and what cute pots they are. I was always skeptical about those kits too, but yours have really taken off. I may have to go get a herb kit. laurie

Lucky you! They're thriving.

For me, the only herbs that managed to survive indoors have been rosemary and sage. My parsley and basil weren't as brave.
