Looks like I might have a bit of a green thumb after all. Basil anyone??
Originally, I wasn’t planning on growing herbs because I thought they would all die. Turns out it’s not that hard and there is a little bit of pride when your recipe calls for a herb that’s actually sitting on your windowsill. What I originally thought was dead leaves was actually herbs that weren’t harvested in time. Unlike flowers that take time to bloom, fresh herbs can be used right away ( Apparently, I lack common sense when it comes to plants!) Upon realizing this, I clipped off the yellow and dying leaves and this seem to have promoted more growth! I bought these cute little planters at Ikea and every morning, I love walking into my kitchen and seeing the herbs of my labour.
My little garden is slowly growing… I recently received a living lettuce plant that I’ve successfully managed to keep alive and have used the greens to add into my daily smoothies.
Because I have been so amazed by my herbs, on Tuesday night I was gifted with the most awesome gift from my sorority secret sister.
Who knew that I would get so excited over a book about balcony gardening but it’s going to totally absorb the rest of my afternoon. (summer hours whoop whoop!) Already rating this one a green thumb up!
