My Herbs

So I'm growing my very own herbs!

The problem is I can't remember which one is growing which herb. I wanted the pots that had the name of the herb on it, but when I went to check out the last "parsley" pot was broken *tear*. So I switched it out for these three troublemakers...basil, parsley and thyme.

Day 1...Nothing... (growing your own herbs don't exactly offer instant gratification).

Day 3...Nothing...I'm pretty sure they are dead.

Day 5...Oh my sweet little home grown basil (or thyme...or Parsley)! SPROUTS! One of them finally started sprouting...I was relieved since I'd forgotten to water them.

Any herb growing advice? Any idea how long before I can cook with them? Will they be ready by the weekend?

  1. Whatever you do, DON'T over-water. I've killed more herbs than I can tell you by drowning them. They only need water every few days (no more than twice a week). And they like the sunshine :)
