My Mini Garden

Here we have sage, lavender, thyme, and basil

I have four pots that I planted seeds in. We'll see if they start to grow in a couple of weeks. I planted rosemary, dill, delphinium, and foxglove.

I decided I wanted to plant my own herbs and a few flowers. I love to cook with fresh herbs. I use them all the time and they get pretty pricey so I decided to plant my own. Hopefully I can keep them alive and enjoy plenty of yummy dinners because of them! We'll see.

I remember when I gave you that idea!! Im so glad you did it finally! I found some really cute pots but one broke :( Your mom planted all of hers in the same pot and it looks adorable! Yay for herb gardens! ~Mari

i love it! I totally wanted to get into gardening this spring. When I get back from my trips...we'll see what happens but I'm pretty sure it might be too late now. Are you back in salt lake? or when?! May 30th, we have a movie to see ;)

How funny! I did the same thing but I planted sage, thyme, cilantro, parsley,and basil. I planted them in 2 big pots tho. You will definately need more. One recipe practically wipes out my stock! Love, Mom

That's so great. I love fresh herbs and I love having everything on hand because I never plan ahead on meals. I just make stuff up. You'll love having that.

I wish I could plant a garden but I think our balcony is to weak to hold any pots. My dad was saying how steven flew your cousin down for prom that weekend he broke his neck that' sucky. But better a broken neck then dead i'd say

That's a good idea. I love cooking with fresh herbs. Maybe I'll start one of those too...
You're right, Carter does need to get to know his cute little Aunt Courtney, so when are you going to come visit?? I say you come at the end of May and we can go see SATC together... :) I'm going to plan a little trip to Utah sometime in June or July, so I need to make sure you'll be in town!
