Herb Garden - Take 1#

so, i started some garden fun last week - with these cute little planters i found from Target in the $1 section, which was so cool! they're called "Buzzy Mini Grow Pots" and they come with little porcelain pots, seeds, and a little pellet of soil that expands. it was loads of fun!

these are the kits

these are our own mini bowls

i spread it all out on the countertop

tried to keep it all organized so we know what's what

this is the soil that's been freeze-dried - i think? :)

then i just added a little bit of water

then the soil magically expanded!

and i did the same thing for the rest of the little soils

then i mixed up the soil and water

and i put a little over half of the soil into the planter

and these are the cute little seeds (5 in each pot)

i put the little guys in the pot

then i covered it up with the rest of the soil and lightly packed it in

then we put 'em on our window seal

and now we'll just have to wait and see!

thanks to husband for taking the pics!

all i have to do is keep the soil moist. its so fun to watch these little guys grow.

i hope to have a huge vegetable garden one day
........baaaaby steps though....baby steps!

Hey gal, I just bought the pots and I am going to try them. I could only find the Basil, Parsley, and something called ornament peppers. Lyndsey and I are going to start them tomorrow!!!~Aunt J
