Over the past few months, I've been thinking of trying to start a small herb garden on my windowsill. Nothing major, just a few small pots. I've never had much success with growing things. (Go ahead. Ask me about the Soybean Fiasco.) In fact, one year, a flower in the container garden on our balcony bloomed while DangerBear was away on business, so I took a picture to prove that it actually happened:
Anyway, back to the herbs. Seeing as how it's the middle of winter, I wasn't expecting to come across seed packets. A couple of weeks ago, though, we were wandering around Lowe's and I happened upon a gardening display. Ooh, seeds! I need some seeds! So I bought some:
See the price in the corner?
That's what I paid for them. It seemed kind of expensive, but I didn't think too much about it.
The following week, I found seed packets on sale for less than half that. Chalk one up for impulse buying.
