green thumb

This morning I tended to my plants (that would be only four, but hey, it's a start). Back in May I planted parsley, basil, and chives in a long planter on my deck railing. I added two more pots, one with oregano and one with sage (a friend gave me starts from her hearty plants). I feared that my herbs wouldn't get enough sunlight, but decided to try anyway. Let me tell you, my basil plant is very sturdy and growing like crazy. The parsley is not far behind. I'm thrilled to have a little fresh herbs to add to my cooking. The oregano didn't make the cut, but the sage is limping along. As for the chives, they're doing fine, but nothing like that basil!
I look forward to one day having more space to garden. For now, I'm content with my green plants on the deck.

Well, if I were to choose just one herb to do really well, it would definitely be basil, so that's exciting! :D

I can't get chives to grow :( This is my second time this year to try planting seeds. And I can't find a plant to buy.
