Tackle It Tuesday: Gardening

It's time for Tackle It Tuesday. I thought I'd tackle something that I had been wanting to do for a long time but never got around to doing it. Today, I did it. I planted herbs in a pot - my herb dish garden!



Not only did I tackle my herb mini-garden, I also transplanted a lot of the anthuriums (on the pots that were drying and needed to be transplanted). I just planted them all on the flower bed in the side of the house. Now I am excited to see them revive and bloom!

I am thankful to Tackle It Tuesday because it motivates me to do the chores the fun way (fun means I take photos and blog about it :). For more bloggers tackling, visit 5 Minutes For Moms.

I just love fresh herbs. I planted mine a few weeks ago and haven't looked back, they grow so fast!
Great Tackle :)

Hello!! I've just ramdomly stumbled upon your blog...your herb garden looks great. I like this "tackle it Tuesday" idea. I may well join up. May I suggest that you fertilise your herbs RELIGIOUSLY once a week?? I do this (when I remember) and it makes the most massive difference...you should post another photo in a few months to show how much they've flourished :)

Hi, Liza. Hope you had a great Mother's Day celebration.

I see that you did some gardening. It's therapeutic, too, di ba.

My husband is the one taking care of the mini herb garden in the balcony (we just live in a small apartment with a balcony). He's really good at it. I long to see the day when he can have a decent vegetable garden in a place we can call our own.

I REALLY want to do this! But I have a black thumb and kill EVERYthing! Good for you!

It is more fun to do housework or any project when you can blog and post pictures about it!!

Great tackle. I love gardening. I planted herb seeds in a similar pot. They still haven't come up yet. Which reminds me I should water them before I go to work this morning.

Yay! I love growing herbs! I started a bunch of seeds yesterday. Yours look great!

I'm going to try to do a bunch of basil in the garden to make pesto! YUM!

looks great! i haven't done herbs before, is it easy?

Look at your herbs! Look at your green lawn! Not fair. You obviously have a green thumb.

If that's rosemary on the left you could be in for a surprise. Ours is a huge bush outside!

I haven't planted a thing. I need to sign up for tackle it Tuesday, though there's so much to tackle I don't know where to start.

Please post photos of the herbs growing. Good luck!

I hope they grow well. Fresh herbs are so much better than dried.

I normally can't grow a thing...but I might try herbs sometime. They look like weeds, right, so how hard could that be? :)

I am so impressed by people who garden on any scale. I have a black thumb--I can't keep a plant alive under any circumstances. I guess I'm destined for fake greenery...lol!

Colleen said...

Oh I've been putting of gardening/lawn work for so long! I really should do a little herb garden like you have...I keep making the excuse that we have such a small yard when really it doesn't need to be that big!

Wonderful Tackle!

They look great. I haven't gotten to planting my herbs yet. But I usually plant a few, just like you in a container. I love to add them to recipes.
