The other day I thought about starting a garden. And then I remember I don’t eat vegetables….
I then decided that I wanted to start growing herbs. Doesn’t cooking with fresh herbs sound fun? Not that I usually cook with herbs…or cook period…but it still sounds like fun.
I have a tendency to start things and not finish them. Nate suggested I start with one herb and go from there.
While bored out of my mind in Menard’s (waiting for Nate to locate some yard thingy), I found this darling herb pot…
We'll call him "Herb"...short for Herbert.
I purchased the $3.97 pot and an 80 cent package of chives.
I placed some dirt in the pot and sprinkled the seeds on top. I then covered the seeds with 1/4” of dirt, as suggested on the package. I gave them some water and set the herb pot on the end table in our kitchen.
Now I’m anxiously awaiting the sprouting of chives!! I planted them on Sunday. I don't see anything yet. I'm getting discouraged. Yes, I do have a bachelor's degree in Biology but that still doesn't make the waiting any easier...
Have you tried to grow herbs? Do you have a favorite recipe that uses chives?
