Last year I began my gardening career. Years ago, when we were in our first house, my husband had a good-sized garden for a couple of years. However, that was his project and I had little, if anything, to do with it.
For some reason, last spring I decided I wanted to try growing some herbs. I bought basil and oregano seedlings at a home improvement store and planted them in pots that I put out on our patio. The basil flourished; I’m not sure what happened to the oregano, but it didn’t fare as well. It turned out that I was okay with not having a huge harvest of it as I decided I was much more fond of using the basil in recipes than the oregano.
This year I have decided to grow basil again and to try some cherry tomatoes. I have been wanting to get them going, but didn’t want to start too early. While at a farmers market on Thursday, I found a vendor selling all kinds of herbs, so I bought my basil from him. (The garlic chives smelled wonderful; may have to add that to my repertoire!)
Someone else at the market was selling small cherry tomato plants, so I went ahead and grabbed one of those.
As you can see, I have gotten them planted in the pots and am so excited to begin watching them grow!
