I went to the store the other day with the plan of buying sage and mint seeds, and what did they have? Practically nothing! I managed to find the sage seeds, but there was no mint to be found. I really wanted another type too since my brother replanted his pear tree and gave me the empty pot left behind. I couldn’t just let an empty pot sit around when it could be the vessel for a glorious herb!
After a great internal debate (and about a half hour looking like a crazy person staring at seed packets) I finally decided upon dill. Why dill? Well, it’s tasty, pretty, and makes me laugh because I think it’s a silly name. Also I don’t have a lot of experience with it and figured this was a good time to learn. Those are good enough reasons for me!
I planted the seeds last night, so it’ll be a while until anything interesting happens with them. Although I do expect to see my extra basil soon!
Here are some photo updates of my basil and parsley:
