Now that it's nice outside again there is no reason I can't. Or at least can't try.
This spider-like pink flowering plant is about the only thing that didn't die over the winter.
In the past I have successfully grown basil, cilantro and chives, so I thought I would give it a whirl again.
Remember, I'm uber-cheap, so I'm using empty coffee cans to start the plants.
I realized drainage was going to be a problem, so I punctured the bottom of the cans.
I hope that does the trick.
I also put a few pieces of broken pots at the bottom of each can to help with drainage .
This is what Target had in stock the evening we visited.
The packages are pretty at least!
Tiny basil seeds - they kind of look like little 'droppings'.
Cilantro seeds. I couldn't get enough of this smell!
Here are my Herb Cans: Day 0.
(That's a classy labeling system, huh?)
For some reason I got brave/optimistic at the store yesterday and purchased 3 plants:
Two Roma Tomato Plants
One Jalapeno Plant
Hopefully in a few months I will have the ingredients in my garden to make my own Pico de Gallo ... minus the onions.
