If you’re one of my regular readers, you may remember I took up windowsill gardening last year.
Frankly, I didn’t think I’d be very successful, seeing that I’ve got an extremely black thumb. But the miracle happened: My windowsill garden thrived for months. Eventually, many of my plants died, but I managed to keep my chives alive.
Oh, they’re not pretty anymore now, and I’m not sure they will survive much longer, but I put them in my back yard the other day, in hopes they might just pull through.
So now I had an empty windowsill, potting soil, quite a few packets of seeds, a couple of egg cartons and my mini greenhouse. I also happened to have some spare time on my hands this afternoon, so I set to work.
I filled my egg cartons with potting soil, placed them in my little greenhouse, sowed my seeds, covered them with more potting soil, watered them using a spray bottle, put the lid on the greenhouse and placed it in my sunny, south-facing kitchen windowsill.
Parsley, thyme, lemon balm, oregano, basil, cilantro, red hot chili peppers and radishes. I can’t wait to see my produce grow!
