The seeds included chives, parsley and basil. I haven’t had chives around and I don’t cook with it much so I’m still looking out for recipes that include them. I use parsley a lot; for carbonaras, salads and other pasta dishes. Basil is of course, a favorite; for tomato based pasta sauces, baked chicken and a lot more.
So we put soil in the pots, placed the seeds and covered them again with soil. My daughter has been reminding me to water them. Forgetful as I am, my father-in-law (not biological) suggested that we cover then with plastic wrap. So cover, my daughter did.
Today I heard a loud call from the kitchen, really was nervous and thought that one of my kids got hurt. I run to the kitchen and my daughter showed me the seedlings. These are basil…the chives have grown too but not as much and the parsley is far behind but they’ve also popped out from the earth.
A few days more and will surely be able to cook with fresh herbs! If you want to know what’s cooking in our kitchen, please visit Mahlzeit. 🙂

Hello Mirage…first of ang cute naman nang model mo ^_^. It is so nice to plant than buying it from the store. And it's also my dream to plant different kind of herbs ang mahal kaya sa store pag every week ka bumili, diba?
That is a wonderful activity for kids! I remember when we experimented on mongo when we were younger. I dreamed of having potted herbs in my kitchen. Sadly we don't have our own kitchen yet, but hopefully soon.

Wow, soon it will be thick!
My Green post, hope you can come and see. Have a good Monday!
Nothing better than watching something come to life before your very eyes.
Cute little helper! It is a great inspiration to have some fresh herbs planted near the kitchen. Good for so many recipes. I buy transplants instead of seeds. Should learn your patience.
Chives are easy to use sis. I got chives in my herb garden too. I use them like using green onions in cooking. Nice progress of your seeds to seedling. They are perennials too. I love your orchid. Hope you can visit my Green Monday page too.
I thought I got lost in my blog hopping but I'm glad to be back here. Hope you can visit my Family time page too.
It's nice to know that your kids are interested in planting too. I miss Mama tuloy, she's a green thumb …
my mom have got a mini herb garden too in the kitchen window, its really great when you can add in fresh herbs in the food, not to mention really yummy
Here is my green entry this week, hope you check it out too.
I Love Darly!
