Sowing Seeds

One day way back in April, while walking accompanying Dan on a mission to find dog food at Tractor Supply Co., I spied a display of seed packets. Last year was my first attempt at sowing seeds directly in the ground, and I was amazed when they actually grew. This year, I decided to attempt starting some cilantro and basil. At $1.50 per packet, I figured it was worth the try.

While my attempts to grow cilantro have now failed two times, my basil is growing like mad. It looks fantastic! I have three plants in a pot and four more plants in the ground, next to my two tomato plants.

On my to do list for tomorrow: pesto.
