found

a galvanized tub for herbs...



my mom called me and told me about these perfect tubs at our local grocer for $5 a piece that included seeds and dirt to start yourself

I was so excited to try to start mine from scratch...
plus these are the three herbs I use the most

basil
chives
parsley

well I use cilantro quite a bit too...

I usually cheat and buy them already started from Trader Joe's every year
because it is much cheaper to grow your own herbs then buy them fresh every week.

{which I still may do if this doesn't work out}

but at least I will be left with 2 cute galvanized tubs if they don't work...
I'm trying mini tomatoes too...YIKES!...

I love to do flowers but haven't tried much of a herb garden or tomatoes...

also found...

two little girls who made a dance platform with sleeping bags in the kitchen while "helping me" with dinner


their favorite song of choice right now to dance around to is
"Soul Sisters" by Train...that's why its on my blog...song number three.

cheers to a great weekend...
I've got some projects in store

The girls are so cute dancing around! I love growing herbs but like you I usually buy them already started out I think I am too impatient to wait for those little seedlings to grow!! :)

Your girls are too cute dancing together! We just started some herbs from seed the other day. Its a fun project for little ones.

Sorry your having a hard time with the transition for your grandpa. It sounds good though and it will be nice to have people around everyday.
