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. 🙂
