At last the herb garden is underway now that the weather has improved. It will be a while before it is finished though.
I started out by collecting empty gallon milk jugs which I cut almost all the way through, made drainage holes and then filled the bottoms with soil to make little miniature greenhouses. That is where I planted my herb seeds. Ultimately I had about 14 containers. I kept them in this large plastic tray. When we were away from home for nearly a week, I was able to fill the tray with about an inch of water which served to keep the baby plants watered the whole time we were gone.
