Beautiful Basil Bounty

Here is my first ever herb garden. Super-Awesome blogger Jane at had a blog giveaway and I was the lucky winner. Yay! Turned out to be the perfect way to fit some gardening in my day. Suburban Gardener had about 45 minutes home alone in the afternoon in between life's motions. Cleared some space in the kitchen, and put the CD up real loud starting with Mendelssohn's Nocturne. Great tune.
Opened the basil kit and found I had to mix the soil with 2 cups of water before beginning. Hmmm. How to do this? Got a big measuring cup and began. Was not as easy as it looks, but got it mixed. All-in-all it took about the whole 45 minutes to follow the instructions, mess up the kitchen, and clean up afterwards. Also got cool soaps made with lettuce and another made with tomato. When the basil grows, we'll post more photos.

Jane, Thank you for the gift and for adding some gardening to my day!!! I suggest everyone check out the awesome blogging at
