Bea's Giant Plant Wall:
|Also, two happy children playing scrabble.|
We grabbed basil, rosemary, chives, and italian flat leaf parsley, and got back in the car. I was told to water them every two days. I wonder how long it will take me to forget to do that for two weeks and then notice.
Ikea was in the midst of redoing the accessories departments; they barely had what I needed -- those little cups that hang on bars. I scored some 'returned' inventory that was opened, ripped up, but still had all the parts.
And then came home and had Aaron install it.
|Oh my little happy campers.|
|Looking good! Ikea dosen't have these on their website, but we got them in this department.|
|I'm afraid to actually eat them because they look so nice.|
So far, we've used the rosemary, by putting it in olive oil and infusing my olive oil (yum). And using it one night when we threw an engagement party, and served a drink that required rosemary.
And we used the basil (really, all of it) to make a fresh pesto.

All in all, we're happy with the herbs. It has taken the number of things we need to water from 1 to 5, which is an agressive uptick, but it isn't as hard as having one kid, then having five kids.
Do you have fresh herbs? Any tips for caring for them?
