Planting Seeds of Hope

Because of the fraudulent charge in my bank account, and having to deal with the bank, I unfortunately have spent a lot of time in my head. And it is not a good place to be. I have gotten comments and “advice” that are less than helpful, and sadly, have only resulted in me feeling even more anxious and worse about myself than I have in a few weeks.

Planting an Herb Garden

In an effort to try and bring some joy into my life and my apartment, I decided to plant some seeds that I was given. Since I love to cook, it only makes sense for me to have home-grown herbs to use in my kitchen. I took an empty egg carton, cut it up, and used it as my seed starter pots.


Starting a variety of herbs from seed…

I planted 2 egg carton cups of each seed, so if it works, I will have Mammoth Basil, Oregano, Sage, Italian Parsley, Rosemary, and Lavender.


Along with parsley and lavender seeds, I have a Christmas cactus, and two avocado plants

I then tended to my other plants. Don’t worry, I took those dead leaves off that poor spider plant.


Two spider plants, a shamrock, and another Christmas cactus

I hope that I get flowers and usable herbs. By the way, does anyone else talk to their plants?

    I remember starting plants in old egg cartons! It was a lovely way to begin a new garden. As for talking to my plants, I don’t do it too much, but I do find it very hard to get rid of any plant. I have poinsettias from three years ago….

  3. My plants think I’m quite the conversationalist! With people, that’s another matter! 😉
