While waiting for our latest human baby, Philip and I have been putting our care-taking energies into providing for our latest plant babies.
Our little herbs have been thriving (ok, two out of the three have - the Chives still haven't show much activity - we are a little concerned for their future). We enjoy taking turns watering and checking for the latest growth. Philip takes delight in noting how they lean into the sun, soaking it in. Last weekend, when the weather warranted open windows, Philip even made the comment that if the Dill had feelings, he was sure it would enjoy the breeze.
Now we have to figure out how and when we're to actually harvest our herbs. And what on earth to do with them after that. Baby steps.
