I'm so excited. You have no idea. All these years I thought I had a "black" thumb in regards to gardening. I had tried and tried and tried to grow my own herbs and they always died. Always. I tried watering more often. Dead. Watering less often. Dead. More sun. Dead. Less sun. Dead.
Turns out... maybe it wasn't me... because lo and behold:
THYME and BASIL sprouts!!
I seriously just put some seeds in some dirt and placed the planter outside my window. I haven't done a thing since. Perhaps living in New England instead of ARIZONA is the key ingredient I'd been missing all those years....
