It has been 2 weeks since my son and I planted our fresh herbs for the victory garden. I thought an update and a couple of pictures were in order:
Now the seeds are nicely sprouted, so it is time to take off the cover and set the planter in a sunny spot.
Isn’t that some lovely basil? I am supposed to wait for the “true leaves” to appear before I snip the seeds back to one or two per square. Don’t worry about the waste though, micro basil is lovely!
Hard to believe that this will become thyme! One of my favorite herbs by far, I wonder what micro thyme tastes like?
Lovely, majestic coriander. This will be so lovely in my Thai Curry Soup.
So far it has been a lovely project to do with my son. The anticipation, the wonder when we propped the lid off far outweighs the 15 dollars spent on the project. Being able to grow your own? Priceless.
