I don't know about you, but when I cook I often leave out the fresh herbs because spending $4 at the market to buy parsley seems so outrageous to me that I just can't bring myself to do it.
Well no longer.
Besides being a financial sound decision to grow our own herbs - it also brings us back to what Inspector Climate and I eventually want to be doing. Growing our own food and living off a little farm in
We bought seedlings of some herbs and seeds of others. Sage. Thyme. Parsley. Basil. Yum. Yum. More yum.
We also purchased some tomato plant seedlings (five this year instead of just three), we're so excited about "real" tomatoes.
This also checks off something on my life list: have an herb garden - however I think this is only partially checked. I'm seeing this herb garden as a commitment. So if it dies out and I don't replant, then I don't think I can, with a clear conscious.
This is basically the perfect way for me to spend a Saturday: a nice walk through some lovely parks to the nursery with my guy and having dirt under my fingernails as we grow that much more of our food.
What's on tap for your Saturday?
