I intended this blog to be a dialogue about my life, at least the creative side, and for anyone interested in the same things as myself. I think there are quite a few of us that have a passion for beautiful things, gardening, good food and sustainable living. This post will be the first in that spirit.
I’m working on several posts that of “cornerstone” content. Some of that content will include a shelf painted with Annie Sloan Chalk Paint and swag lamps for the bedroom. The shelf is especially exciting. It is going to be gorgeous and I can’t wait to share it with you. In the mean time I have other ongoing activities.
Last week I posted about starting my garden seedlings. This week gardening inspiration struck me in the head. This time to plant herb seedlings. Ann at onsuttonplace.com had a great post about starting an indoor herb garden. Watch out inspiration incoming!
She used live plants to start her herb garden in mason jars, but I started mine from seed. Mainly because, I will need more than just a few plants for cooking. I want to sprinkle them throughout the garden and our landscaping. The essential oils in herbs gives them great flavor and also a great aroma. The aroma is good for cooking and for driving off some garden pests. I want to take full advantage of that feature. Plus, in addition to being tasty, herbs are really beautiful plants.
As long as I was busy filling plastic cups with dirt, I also planted some of the cold weather tolerant vegetables. I started my broccoli, Brussels sprouts and cabbage. I’m a little late at getting them started, but I have a feeling it will be a late start to the garden this year. This rain is just wreaking havoc with any chance to get out and start getting the garden ready.
Now, time to start working on some projects. If anyone is interested, here is a link to the onsuttonplace.com article with instructions for the indoor herb garden.
