So, for Christmas I asked for a Chia Herb Garden.  My brother, awesome as he is, got me said herb garden and yesterday I put it all together and "planted" my herbs.  I say "planted" because it's a Chia garden and you put the seeds on TOP of the soil.  Like so.

I started with cilantro, dill, and sweet basil and next I'll grow chives, majoram, and parsley.  It stinks that the kit only comes with three clay pots and six packets of seeds.  Although, it's probably best for easing myself into this process.  We'll see how this works! 

Greenhouse effect? 

Just so you don't have the wrong impression of my growing/planting skills... you should know that I've killed two cacti on separate occasions (one in college and one a few years ago). 

I also receieved two lovely potted plants at the end of the school year last year that were both dead within a few weeks.  I actually have a picture of one of them after the first time it rained... let's see if I can find it... ah yes.

Like I said... dead within weeks.  I actually managed to keep that purple-flowered plant (I don't even know what it's called!) alive by trimming it and watering it for a while... and then I went on vacation for the weekend, came back, and both plants were all brown.  It was sad. 

Anyway, I'm hoping that I can keep a few herb plants alive.  Wish me luck!
