I Killed Our Herbs

I planted a small herb garden a year or so ago outside our side door

I was not a good herb mother and neglected the plants and they died. I know. Not a good Meryl

So I decided to give it another go.

Yes, it's late in the year, but with the wacky weather we've had here in the Bay Area this year, it's not like planting them in May would have been any better because it really has only been hot for about 2-5 days at a time then it either cold, rainy, or cloudy all day long for similar stretches. So now is as good a time as any.

I bought some new gear (I had to buy plants because the place I went to didn't have any seeds)

I pulled out the old, dead plants, mixed in some new soil and plant food, and pretty soon the herbs were looking good as new! (because they are new)

And you know I had to get out the labels again

Hopefully I tend to these ones better...

I know, I LOVE that one, my aunt gave it to us as a housewarming gift, it's a fire pot :)

AND, I already watered them this morning, off to a good start! :)
