442. Plant an indoor herb garden

My Story

Completed January 2004 and October 2004

Okay, so my to do list says plant an indoor herb garden. It doesn’t say “Grow an indoor herb garden” or “Have an indoor herb garden that flourishes.”

I blame my black thumb.

First, I tried to plant the herbs from seeds. Most of them at least started growing. I’m not sure what went wrong, but they didn’t really get past an inch tall or so.

Then, I thought I might cheat and buy the herbs in little pots, already started for me. I lined them up in white pots along my kitchen window sill.

They died alarmingly fast. The rosemary was a goner within a week.

Maybe the third time’s the charm?
