My Little Garden

I'm pretty sure I've already mentioned how I started growing some herbs this summer - basil, cilantro & parsley. My three favourite & most-used herbs. It's going to be wonderful having fresh ones available! Here's what my garden looked like last week:I was pleased - look at the third set of leaves starting to grow!When I went to check on them this week - I really noticed a difference, especially in the basil.Large (ok, small), healthy basil leaves. I want to try one with a fresh tomato. It's probably a bit soon to be plucking the leaves off though...The parsley & cilantro are doing less well, but still hanging in there. The plants that remained in the terrarium showed the most improvement though:Again, the basil is doing exceptionally well.I'll be cooking with it in no time! And hopefully the small pots & terrarium will do well indoors come winter time.
