Planting, potting, blogging..

 

Taking advantage of living in the Southern States means gardening is okay in winter. Harvesting your own produce means having fresh vegetables and herbs right in your
backyard, without worrying about what pesticides was used on it or how it was
transported, saving you money and time. Seriously.

I am a beginner in gardening; so seeding is something I will wait till my mom visits us. I usually just use rosemary, thyme, cilantro and mint in my dishes, so I repotted those herbs. My husband loves spicy peppers, so I made a separate pot of chili peppers for him. I think it will take the peppers few more months before we can taste it. The herbs will be ready to use in just a week. I just need to make the roots feel “at home.” It will take little maintenance and I can clip off the leaves as needed. Wonderfulness growing in my patio!! This is exciting!
