Playing in the dirt

About this time every year I get anxious to be outside. I need sunshine! Especially after preparing for and teaching a gardening class at our Stake Women's conference, I have been excited to start ordering seeds and planning our garden (it will be 6 times as big this year! Yay for finishing the backyard!). In order to help me make it til we can start planting, Ellie and I decided to start some herbs to grow indoors.

We painted some pots:

Filled them with soil:
Poked holes, planted seeds,
and placed the pots under a grow light.

we're growing basil, chives and sage. We'll be excitedly awaiting our little starts popping up and we'll keep you posted.


  1. I'm going to need to get a few pointers from you when it comes time to plant vegetables etc. this year. I don't have the slightest clue on what to do! ...I'm pretty sure that Ben doesn't either... :)
