I’ve always threatened to actually have a go at growing something. Anything. I’ve killed every plant I’ve ever owned, but Tenerife is all about new beginnings. So I decided to start a little herb garden – because I can. A few weekends ago, we did
the very adult thing of going to the Garden Centre on a Saturday morning. I picked out some really basic seeds, got some soil and trays. I also picked up some miniature gardening tools because I like to be extra sometimes.
At time of publishing, my little garden has been growing for 3 weeks! I think we’ve made good progress. It’s not as if I have to do much. I set up my soil, picked a spot that they get some direct sunlight in, I water them daily and on really good days, sing a little song as i do so 🙂
I have some basil, parsley, yellow pepper plants and chives growing. The basil is pretty much ready, and the parsley is a close second.
I was a little bit worried about the peppers, but now that they have started growing, I’m sure there will be a bountiful harvest in the future (she said like she knows what she’s talking about…)
Now that I have this lot going, I’m thinking about expanding and growing some coriander and oregano. Big move – I know.
The only thing about this is I now have to think of things to make to use up my supplies.
Challenge accepted! And, truthfully, suggestions required!!! If you have any ideas for simple herbs and veg to grow on a window sill for a total novice, please let me know!
Be good or be good at it!
