Baby, it’s cold outside!
But inside the house, my garden is growing happily in the kitchen window and in the living room window as well. A couple of weeks ago, I filled cardboard egg crates with soil. Then, I added seeds and a handful of hope.
Today when i checked them…
I have lil’ sprouts! I told a couple of friends at work about this venture and got looks of amazement. They all acted like I was doing something amazing, which on the one hand I am and on the other it’s the most natural thing in the world. There are so many people who limit themselves with things like “I could never” and “I’m not that talented”. For that reason, they become bitter and unhappy as the people around them test themselves and expand their horizons. Don’t be one of those people; instead try something new!
Not all of my seeds have sprouted yet, but I have high hopes and if they do, I’ll add lemon balm, lemongrass, tarragon, savory, a new type of basil, and thyme to my indoor herb garden.
(On a side note, all the lil’ sprouts that I don’t keep will be going to new homes with my coworkers who are hopeful that I’ll also share my homemade red sauce recipe!)
