Apartment Garden, Day 1

My roommates and I are itching for some green this spring!  Unfortunately, our building doesn't have much in the way of green space outside.  We started the next best thing: an apartment garden!

Right now, yes, it looks like a 3rd grade science project, with the seedlings started in an egg carton and 5 sawed-off milk jugs laying in wait for plants, but you know what?  Those beans I planted in Mrs. Zywiec's class grew - especially the ones we played music to.  So we've got basil, chives and thyme started on the stereo, and I'm hoping to get some lemon ball basil from my cousins.

Also, this is my first post from my Motorola Cliq - here's hoping it works!
