My new herbs!
I am ridiculously excited about my new plants. Poor Matthew, I made him schlep to the Farmer's Market with me during the rainiest part of the day on Sunday. We got soaking wet, but I found the prettiest little herbs and a few other goodies to boot, some strawberries, limes and limequats. How fun! I might make a strawberry, lime curd tart tomorrow. Then I can use all my goodies at once.
So, once the sun came out(about 15 min after we got back from the farmer's market), I planted my little herbies: Lemon Thyme, English Thyme, Candy Mint, Baby Lettuce and Sage, along with a few radish seeds that I picked up at the hardware store. We'll see if the radishes grow. The herbs will undoubtedly die at some point because I have a decidedly grey thumb, but I'll see just how long I can keep them alive. They are unbelievably pretty right now and, as you can see in the photos, I'm just beyond excited about them.
