The first trip to the nursery left me slightly overwhelmed at the bounty and the cost of all the necessary supplies (and I wasn't even factoring in one of those cute little garden totes and the little mat you kneel on whilst working in the garden).
I wanted that lovely,
giant blue planter because I had visions of this overflowing pot of herbs.

The lovely blue planter was $89, and my affinity for having my head attached to my neck renders Tijuana a less-than-ideal vacation destination, so I decided to save my pennies and head to
As soon as I started filling my planters, I realized that I had severely underestimated just how much potting soil I would need, so I will be heading back to the nursery tomorrow. I did, however, get the tomato and rosemary plants settled in their new homes. Hopefully the whole project will be completed by tomorrow afternoon.
If all goes well, we will be enjoying delicious, organically home-grown herbs and veggies by June or July.
