I’m finally fed up with throwing herbs away. After pitching a practically full container of cilantro, I figured it was time for me to put my DIY skills to work.
I’d been tossing around the idea of creating a small garden out on the patio. We get really bright sunlight right in front of the patio door and since I’m not out to plant a full garden, I think I can work with the sunny spot.
Then I had to figure out if I wanted to start with seeds or baby plants. Being adventurous, I started with seeds.
I bought these at Target in the Dollar Corner. I figure if anything goes wrong, I’m only out $3 (tomato kit not pictured).
I set out to create my little domes and found that there were WAY more seeds than the containers could hold. So I had to add the egg carton and plastic cups.
All total, there are approximately 40 possible seedlings that should grow some time in the next month according to the package. I hope they grow so I can cut cilantro and basil on demand and send The Hero to pick tomatoes when he’s complaining he can’t eat a salad without one.
Now if I only had a container big enough for the scary onions growing green arms….
