Awhile back I posted about my new baby herb…well friends, that petite sprout is now a whole jungle of sprouts! (btw–the first set of herbs died due to overwatering, so this is my second attempt)
It was finally time (or maybe a little past due) to replant those little pellets from the Home Depot “greenhouse” to something more appropriate.
We found these window boxes at Home Depot:
I didn’t like the look of them at all at first, but they have blended in really well with our other balcony decor. Although, now that I see them online, I realize they only have 1 out of 5 star reviewed haha. We’ll see how long they survive.
Replanting was very easy.How to replant Jiffy herb pellets: 1) Two big window boxes were just barely big enough to house our 25 pellets. Make sure you have enough room! 2)Fill window boxes with dirt. 1 cubic foot of soil was perfect.
3) Take the netting off of the pellets. 4) Dig holes deep enough for each of your pellets to fit in. 5) Set pellet in the hole and gently pat soil around the pellet. 6) Water the whole thing.
Here’s to hoping these puppies survive! I’m really jonesin’ for some truly homemade pesto.
What projects have been on your list lately? Do you have “Doe Jobs” and “Buck Jobs”??
