My Kitchen Garden: Volume 3

Basil

Parsley

Coriander

We have progress! Everything has sprung up. In fact the coriander shoots are becoming a tangled mess and I'm not sure what to do about it. The most exciting development is that new, real leaves are appearing on all the herbs so they are starting to look more like their "adult" selves. I am slightly worried about what is going to happen to them while I am away over the next few weeks though. I would hate for them to wilt away for lack of watering. Can you take plants across the US/Canada border?

Oh, they are so cute! I don't really know if you are allowed to take the plants - do they have 'novel traits'?

My parsley has been going crazy recently - we have had so much rains and it loves it. It's grown about a foot in the past week! I've got to eat more of it to keep it from getting too leggy, I think.

My eggling was starting to look so promising second time 'round. (Something funky happened with the seed packet the first time) I meant to take a picture to show you but then disaster struck.

The Atlanta sun murdered my basil. It was brutal.

I have one shot left! Curse me and my very-much-not-green thumbs.

Jennifer - Thanks for the tip, luckily I didn't have to deal with the Canadian Food Inspection Agency in the end.

Amy - Good luck with your last shot!

Frances - I've never seen those before! I might have to do a taste test...

Thomas - That's hilarious.
