Welcome to the Jungle Part 2: Herbalicious

(Yes, I had Fergie in my head the whole time I wrote this... and now you will too!)

When my parents were here a few weeks ago, my mom helped me plant an herb garden. My mom loves growing things and playing in the garden, so she jumped at a chance to help me cultivate my green thumb. Up until now, the only reason I had a green thumb was because I'm a messy painter... and chances are I had a green knee, nose and toes too! 


Yes, you are reading correctly...we planted "super chilis!" Leave it to me to plant the super-hero of the plant world. 

I'm sure Chris and I will find a recipe to use them in, though if you've read this post from last summer, you'll know we're not fans of the "super-duper" spicy! If nothing else, they'll add some color to my little garden. 



Look, there's one growing! I haven't killed it yet, Mom!



I love the freshness and color they lend to our little sunlit patio. Definitely an improvement from this last summer: 



The plants have been growing really well, so I think I'll have to make a batch of Palumbo spaghetti sauce gravy soon! Or maybe some yummy Thai food with sweet Thai basil! 

Anyone want to come over for dinner??

  5. Question! Where did you buy your herbs from? I want to start a mini herb garden in pots from Ikea but am afraid that if I buy cheap seeds from Walmart, they won't grow! Any suggestions?

    Hope you have a blessed weekend! :)
