Herb Today, Grown Tomorrow

From time to time I do head out into the yard and attempt to exercise my brown thumb. Especially when it’s a sunny 72 degrees and I just can’t stand the thought of being inside. Last spring I was pretty stinkin’ proud of myself for my novice attempt at an herb garden, but of course, as the weeks went by, my around-the-house-ADD left this patch of dirt more than slightly neglected.

Sadly, there weren’t many survivors. Dill, parsley, basil and cilantro just couldn’t handle my here’s a little dirt, a smidge of sunshine and water when-I-remember-you’re-still-out-there mentality towards gardening.

But not my rosemary…

My poor little kitty friend is suffocating underneath all the herb goodness. He’ll learn to love it. Heaven knows I’m not planting another bush for him to keep company.
