For Christmas I got a Chia Herb garden. I was so excited to grow my own garden. It came with 6 different kinds of seeds: Basil, Cilantro, Parsley, Marjoram, Chives, and Thyme. I decided to try the Basil and Cilantro first.
I very carefully "planted" the seeds in the Chia soil mixture.
I put them on my stove to keep them warm. And even gave them plastic bag hats to give them a little green house affect.
The basil was the first to sprout.
But the cilantro wasn't too far behind.
The basil also started to grow first.
But once the cilantro got started it grew like a weed.
I was so careful to water them regularly.
I moved them to the kitchen in the mornings so they could get sunlight during the day. And then moved them into my bedroom at night so they wouldn't freeze.
But they stopped growing. This was as tall as they got.
