Herb Garden

Last year I bought some of those flowers in a can that Fred Flare sells. Died.

Bought a few easy-to-care-for green plants and put them in the window. Died.

So you can imagine how thrilled I was when I successfully grew some herbs that my friend Judith gave me.


Now comes the problem. How do I maintain them? How often can I cut them? The chives in particular are looking a little crazy.

Enlighten me, dear herb garden experts, with your advice!

  2. That makes me feel so much better! You should see it now. There is probably a small colony of people moving in as I type this.

    Thanks for the link! I'll update you with my progress. Step two is figuring out what dishes to put the herbs in!
