My little herb garden

This morning I was reading Deb's "Keep it Cheap" blog and found instructions for a one-pot herb garden.

I've been toying with the idea of having some herbs growing in the house for a long time, but considering my history of killing any and all house plants I touched, I pushed it to the back of my mind.

However, reading that tutorial really gave me the gardening fever; and I already had the herb seeds here, waiting for spring. Unlike at my old house, there are some south-facing windows here!


I made little signs so I'd know what's what, because I'm not all that familiar with what most herbs look like.

I really hesitated to blog about this because I don't have much faith in these plants thriving, but I'm throwing caution to the wind. You folks can share the adventure with me, whether there's a happy ending or not.

Patience will be required, because it can take up to ten days for the seeds to even germinate.

Here's hoping!

I can't wait to see how it turns out. I tried the same thing last year....mine came up good, but died shortly after. I don't know what happened.

I'm anxious to see your garden grow. I've tried several times without any luck to grow herbs inside. One year at the home and garden show they had lots of plants for sale and I bought several and little by little they all died. I think my house is too dry or not enough light for them...but I gave up. Any way I wish you lots of luck with yours. Maybe your green thumb is better than mine. I never have any problem growing them outdoors though and we have several that come back every year. There is just nothing like the fresh oregano in your spegetti sauce for sure. 'On Ya'-ma

I wish I had south facing windows. My old house has all kinds of windows but there is a 4 foot overhang and very little sun comes in, which is good in the summer. I just don't have much sunshine and I love fresh veggies and herbs!
