Thyme for Herbs

Gone are the days when I had enough time to plant herbs and keep them alive all summer. Well, that’s not exactly true. Every (and I mean every) spring I get suuuuuuper excited to scoop up ALL the herbs from Home Depot. I swear each year will be different from the last and that I’ll perfectly plant them and diligently water them..for about a week. Then Matt takes over the herb watering because he’s awesome and then reminds me the following spring that if I want to plant herbs I should care for them. Touche, Matt. Touche. But this year I promise things will be different. For real.

Because I have another person to take over the watering duties. And she takes this job really seriously.

 And she has an adorable water boy helper that does anything she commands. 

 But they have their work cut out for them because we purchased our herbs during a random Home Depot run and then let them sit in the bed of Matt’s truck for about a week before remembering to plant them. Oops. Wish them luck!

PS – If you have toddlers, you need this Little Tikes Garden Table for the summer!

I always try to get my kids to take over all plant watering duties! I have a black thumb and manage to kill everything. I thought they were doing so well until I caught them watering the flowers by the pool with POOL WATER. No wonder they were dying faster than normal. ;) And that little table is adorable! I miss having littles!That Inspired Chick

Good luck! I always go crazy with my herb garden too, and buy herbs I've never even heard of! Ha!
