I had big dreams of making a super awesome herb garden, like this one I saw on Apartment Therapy (I realize those aren’t herbs in the picture, they’re succulents, but I wanted to use the idea for herbs):
Alas, my arch enemies, Time and Money, thwarted my plans and so I went to the dollar store and created my own herb “garden” for $9.00 (plus the cost of the seeds, which I bought at Lowes a month ago):
My sweet basil is already sprouting and the chives aren’t far behind. Hopefully they’ll all sprout and I’ll have some nice herbs to dry for the winter. I’ll keep you posted on how they do over the summer.
When I was planting the herb garden, the sweet basil made me think of The Velvet Underground’s “Sweet Jane” and I had that song in my head for a week. So, without further ado, for your listening pleasure, “Sweet Jane”.
*Note – apparently you can’t listen to this from my blog, so click through to youtube to hear one of the best bands ever.
