My Herb Adventure: Part 1
So I had been asking dad to let me plant some herbs for weeks. He’s got the green thumb and mostly I just wanted supervision. Apparently I wasn’t forceful enough, because by the time he agreed, it was too late for seeds so we had to get small plants from the greenhouse. Not that I was totally disappointed- I figure that it will give me some practice on how to preserve and use fresh herbs. I’ve never had a fresh herb in my kitchen- apart from the occasional garlic clove. We’ve always bought the dried up mess from the grocery store- not even in a grinder.
We planted them about a week ago and they were rather small- and they’ve flourished. Apparently we have a green thumb together, and the places we picked worked well. We only clipped three plants today, but later in the week I’m sure that we will clip more. All we know about herbs we’re learning from books and the internet- so here’s hoping we don’t totally muck it up!
I also really hate how this layout crops my images to fit. So I might be changing wordpress themes.

Hung out to dry 🙂
