Planting Herbs

In our quest to eat healthier as well as be more frugal and earth friendly, we have plans for a large garden this year. And this year we are including herbs as part of the garden. The girls were excited to get started planting so we purchased a cute little herb garden "green house" kit. Everything we needed to start basil, oregano and parsley, except for the hands to do the work. Of course those were easy to supply.

Sarah is busy planting her seeds. She also made a really cool chart to record planting date, sprout date and harvest dates as well as pictures and other cool facts.

Hannah watered the seeds and her sisters as well.

It's been six days and we already have a few tiny sprouts. The girls were so excited.

We plan to start most of our vegetables this week. So stay tuned . . .


  1. Looks like fun, and there will be a reward for hard work at the end! We wish there was space for a garden here!

  2. That's awesome. I can't wait until next year when I start from seed. :)

  3. Looking good! Thanks for being part of the challenge!

  4. We love gardening and really enjoyed the pictures on this blog!

    Many blessings...
