Spring, you’re such a tease.

Spring has been a real skank thus far…  playing peek-a-boo with sunny 60 degree days, and then peppering us with snow flurries and 13 degree weather.  I had visions of tulips and budding trees and sugarplums dancing in my head come the 21st of March, and *cough* – “Spring” shot them down with its frigid temps and perma-gray skies.  So, I’ve decided to stop waiting on the elusive old floozy, and get the party started.  In my window sill.  So if you’re out & about this weekend:

  • Scare up some terra cotta pots at Target, Wal-Mart or Home Depot
  • Grab a few seed packets of your favorite herbs (I just planted basil, cilantro, and lemon balm)
  • Snag a few bags of soil…  then plant, water, and watch ’em grow.

If you want to kick it up a really pretty notch, instead of using terra cotta pots, plant your herbs in gorgeous vintage tea tins, like zeese:

By the time it decides to play nice outside, your herbs will have germinated and started to flourish, and you can always transfer them to a larger pot and plop ’em outdoors, where they can grow & prosper.

Go Cubs Go!
