hope and the herb garden
After much of coaxing and making believe that one can have a herb garden on the windowsill, even in such harsh weather up north - we sowed the seeds in the pot. As soon as I had done so, I was expecting to see tiny seedlings. All the other plants that we had planted that weekend are lush green, a number of tiny seedlings are peeking out of the soil in the flower pots. But my herbs wouldn't appear. I would plead to the seeds while watering them, to grow fast, but of no avail. There hadn't been a place in the house that has trapped sunlight and I haven't placed the pot in. But it seemed till yesterday that nothing would budge. I can now see 2 heads of chives from where I stand! No signs of the coriander, basil and mint yet, but there is definitely hope.
