Maybe being a newlywed made me feel the need to be domesticated.
(And since I am was terrified of most kitchen appliances planting a windowsill garden seemed like a safer way to start.)
Whatever the cause, I kept a handful of plants alive for much of the spring. But, they met demise as summer approached.
So I waited out the cold winter months with a nearly empty windowsill (one Ivy is still going strong) and then took advantage of the local market for restocking my herbs/plant companions.
That first batch of the year had some serious issues (i.e. I didn't allow them to drain enough and they got all Titanic on me), so I started fresh last week.
This time I hit up an even closer garden supply store for plants, advice, and a weird run-in with a very large turkey. (It was at least fourty pounds and free ranging the greenhouse.)
It's only been a week since I brought these young beauts home, but so far they're looking great and stealing my heart.
I think it's doing them good having them on the patio, where they can get a lot more sun.
It's also doing me good to see so much green, and to have a reason to forego my vampire ways and enter the sunlight at least once a day.
I'll keep you posted how well they do/taste, as the season progresses.
But for now, it's nice to have a house (patio) of plant babies to liven the place up.
Happy earth day friends, world.
I'm gonna go have dinner that doesn't come from a styrofoam container tonight.
Ya know, just doing my part. ;)
