Ch, Ch, Ch, Chia! Herb Garden

20130119-072850.jpg

I have been wanting a countertop herb garden for quite a while. So when my family asked for Christmas ideas, one if the items I told them that I wanted was an herb garden that I could put in my kitchen. So for Christmas my grandma sent me this super fun Chia herb garden. It is so cool. No messy potting soil; instead it has special Chia sponges. You soak them and then sprinkle the seeds on top. The package included 6 different seed packets to choose from. I chose basil, because I am Italian and live on basil. I also chose dill because I love to use dill with salmon and in my chicken salad and I prefer fresh dill to dried. The last one I chose is cilantro. It was a toss up between that and curly parsley but I use cilantro a lot more than curly parsley. Since I live to cook Mexican food, and we have taco Tuesday’s at my house it was my choice. Plus, I prefer flat leaf parsley.

I m super excited that after only a week they are already sprouting! It’s like a tiny bit of springy goodness on my kitchen counter! Yay! I can’t wait until I can use then in my cooking.
