the herbs I plan to grow.
Over the next few months in knit-blog world, we'll be seeing photos of gardens being planted, growing and being harvested. My inner-suburban-plot-of-land-to-grow-stuff farmer turns green with jealousy as I see the tomatoes and flowers and even the zucchini being grown.
Living in a small, NYC apartment doesn't give me much opportunity to play around in dirt. But, this year, I'm going to try.
Hubster and I were upstate over the weekend and we stopped into a nursery. I decided to start with a few herbs. Basil, cilantro and mint. Visions of mozzarella and tomato, guacamole and iced tea.
Since we have sunny south-facing windows, I chose herbs that enjoy the sun.
That's the cilantro and basil. Since I've read that the mint is an aggressive, take-over type of plant, I'll plant that in a separate container.
This morning, when I opened the curtains, the scent of basil filled the air. I'm gonna love this!
