This spring weather has got me wanting to spend all my time outside! That is, when it stays sunny for more than one day. Four seasons in one day over here in Melbourne!
The other week I mentioned that Chris and I found an awesome old chest from hard rubbish, which I planned to turn into a herb garden! Here's how it turned out:
We live in a tiny apartment, so our potential garden area is limited to a tiny balcony. Earlier in the year I bought some seedlings and planted them in some pots. While they lasted for awhile, they soon all died off, most likely due to my lack of gardening knowledge! Inspired by the spring weather and newly acquired garden bed, Chris and I decided to try this herb garden thing again. We have planted rosemary, oregano and basil from seed (something I have never done before!). I've been nervously checking them - for fear of me somehow managing to destroy them - and then yesterday:
Progress! Tiny green progress! The basil is finally popping out, yet still no progress from the others. Fingers crossed things keep improving!
Has this spring weather got you outside? Do you have any advice for a poor, amateur gardener like myself haha?
