Merged with my obsession with food, comes an other obsession with gardening fresh ingredients to use in my recipes. The real madness began a few years ago, just before I decided to put all my belongings in storage to live a nomadic life. As I’m writing this, my traveling is behind me (for now) and it’s time to grow cute little green babies again!
A few weeks ago, I started planting some of those seeds and here’s what my urban garden looks like today. Nothing’s better than to surround yourself with thriving nature while the outdoor nature is sleeping under a big pile of snow. Spending relaxing minutes looking at the green of their leaves or simply watch them grow while drinking your morning coffee is my definition of a perfect moment.
Currently, many seeds haven’t hatched yet, and a few needed to be re-planted but it’s pretty great start.
The Greek basil is the only plant giving me a little trouble with a few “burnt” or “dried” leave tips which is apparently due to either too much water or not enough. Not sure what happened to it yet but I’m still trying to find the proper watering schedule to avoid further damages.
Stay tuned for many more urban gardening galleries and soon recipes featuring these gorgeous little creatures.
