A few weeks ago there was a voucher in one of the papers for free six pack of gardenias. We walked on over to Homebase with the voucher, picked up a window box, some compost, Miracle Gro (hey, my dad uses it and he has a serious green thumb. So it's good enough for him, it's very good for us) and our gardenias. We put them all together and they now sit in our kitchen window waiting for the weather to turn warm so they can go outside. There they are above.
Then we were sent a wonderful package. It was a Miracle Gro Gro Your Own Herbs Planter and three different herb seeds. Cate was ecstatic.
Today we took the bag out - that's right it's an all in one bag with compost. It was crazy simple and fun. Here is a quick tutorial for you. My model/assistant is Cate. She was paid in chocolate.

Voila! Herb garden!
Now we wait to see our garden grow!! Yay!
