We spend most of the summer visiting family, so we aren't home enough to plant a real garden outside. This year, I decided I had to do something, so I planted a few of our favorite herbs, sweet red peppers and tomatoes. This is what I ended up with:

The herbs are doing surprisingly well. I've been able to make pesto twice, so I'm super excited. The cilantro is doing okay. I don't know if I over-planted or what, but it's all droopy. Last year, I bought a cilantro plant from the farmers' market and it was nice and tall. Oh well, at least mine is still producing I guess. The parsley I bought from the grocery store, because they had organic herbs on sale super cheap and I couldn't pass it up. The peppers took forever to sprout, so I'm not sure if they'll do anything. Plus, I had them outside last week and they blew across the patio. Oops. The tomatoes (not pictured) grew like crazy and I already sent them home with my mom to transplant!

Such a good idea! I've always had the best luck with growing herbs in pots vs in the ground.

That is such a great mini garden, I love the coloured pots! My coriander (cilantro) is all droopy too but it looks healthy.

That's such a brilliant windowsill garden, kdub. My early coriander shoots are all droopy and flimsy too, but they get bushier and firmer as they get a bit bigger.

That's good to know droopy cilantro is normal. It's one of my favorite summer herbs for salsa!

I was just given some stuff to start some windowsill herbs, so this is great inspiration!

You will love it! No matter how small your "garden" is, it's so rewarding to pick and cook with fresh herbs. Good luck!
