To celebrate the first day of Spring last weekend we planted an herb garden with Caroline. Well, technically Matt planted the garden and I ran around taking photos of Caroline contributing a 65 scoops of dirt and 72 buckets of water. But I’d say our herbs are off to a healthy start…
Every year I promise myself I won’t buy cilantro or basil because they are doomed from the get go, but oops I did it again. There is just something so enticing about the perfect green leaves sitting all pretty on the Home Depot shelf.
I think we’re on dirt scoop 13 at this point…
…scoop 65. Phew. On to watering!
For the past few weeks Caroline has been really in to watering the plants at home with Matt so as soon as we told her we needed to water her garden every day you would have thought I told her the new Doc McStuffins baby was coming to our house. She was so, so, so excited.
More watering. She’s just so damn cute I couldn’t help but take a million pictures.
Alas, the perfect over-potted and over-watered herb garden!
Let’s hope we can keep it alive!
