Maybe my thumbs aren’t quite so black anymore. In fact, I think they’re turning gray! Trust me, this is an improvement. So far, our little herb garden is still alive. Actually, I think it might be safe to say that it’s thriving! Either that or I just totally jinxed it and they might all die in the next five minutes. I thought it might be time for an update and some new-and-improved photos. Check out how our garlic is totally busting out! Can’t wait to eat those babies!
My only concern is that the basil and cilantro are both yellowing a bit around some of the leaves. My go-to gardener aficionado (the only one in my family with any skills in this area, my little brother) thinks it’s probably too much sun combined with overwatering so we’re going to tread lightly with those two for a while. But they are both blossoming, along with the parsley, which is pretty neat! And check out how TALL the cilantro is getting. I could hardly fit it all in the photo frame!
I’m thinking the next step is a tomato plant and some pretty flowers for our front porch. I’ve not only recently decided I like eating tomatoes but have never in my life seen the need to grow a entire plant devoted to them (having past perceived them as satanic and mushy tasting) nor do I do so well at keeping flowers alive. But, yet, I think it’s time for this next step. Any suggestions for a girl with a gray thumb?
