Not much gardening you can do when you live in a condo, but I decided I'd try to grow some herbs on my windowsill (the balcony is out of the question with the kids always out there). I bought basil and chives seed kits from Target for $1 back in May. Each kit included a tiny pot, seeds, soil disc, and plastic "greenhouse." I've enjoyed watching them grow.
I was particularly excited to eat the sweet basil (middle) and after about 1.5 months and 2 pot transplants, I felt she was ready for harvesting. So I made this garlic lemon basil tomato zucchini spinach butter olive oil chicken pasta in the crock pot just to taste our little baby. Deeelish! (Tastes better than it looks).
