Maybe my thumb isn't so green after all...


Remember this post where I updated you on the progress of my first attempt with growing herbs? I was hopeful, excited, proud...

Well, I'm sad to say they all bit the dust. The first to go was the oregano (well, it was never really there) followed closely by the basil. I even bought another envelope of basil seeds and tried again. No go.
Today, I decided to toss in the towel on the cilantro and chives. There are sprouts, but they didn't get much farther than that.

Chives - they want to go back in the soil

Maybe I should just visit our local farmer's market and get seedlings. That way I'm only responsible for keeping it seed work required.
