Green thumbs R' Us!

We have decided to attempt to grow our own herbs this year. Jeff was kind enough to get us some trays of peat pellets and a wide variety of herbs. The kids and I tackled this project tonight before bed.

We added water to the trays to allow the peat to expand. Very simple. Even for us. :)

The size of the seeds became a frustration for the kids. Especially a little boy who had clammy hands!Viola- all planted and ready to cover.

I think the kids will enjoy seeing the progress our little herbs will make in the next few weeks. I just hope that some of them make it!
