tow-head messes
 
For Mother's Day I asked for a potted herb garden.  My wish was granted, we headed to Home Depot-no questions asked, and I got cold feet.  I don't know what happened, I usually don't have commitment issues.  I guess the thought of maintaining the planters, and actually cooking with the herbs gives me a little anxiety.  My list of herbs includes: lemon thyme, parsley, basil, and cilantro.  I was also thinking of planting a cucumber plant and pepper plant.  I don't know...I'm still on the fence about this,  Hudson is still really excited about planting an "irv" garden, and I'm sure we can handle it.

I will admit that I got a little freaked out this week picking vegetables from my parents' garden.  I picked a zucchini (no problems there) and cut off some romaine lettuce.  I took the lettuce inside to wash it and discovered two snails - grossed me out and tossed the lettuce in the compost.  I realize there are bugs on the veggies, but come on...snails with no shells.  Technically I'm not sure what the slothy things were, other than disgusting.
  
Maybe I'll think about for the next couple of weeks, and if it's not too late when we get back from vacation I'll take the plunge.  In the meantime I will continue to find amazing examples (like the one below - from modernbackyard.com), and listen to Hudson ask about when we're going to plant our "irv" garden.
