|Brand new start|
Went to Bunnings on a fine day, bought packets of potting mix, fertiliser, mulch and seeds. Instead of spending money on planting pots, I've decided using recycle material from various dairy bucket. Drilling holes at the bottom for easy drainage.
As I am quite determine to grow them successfully, I started growing the basic herbs from seeds and follow a strict guideline. From left to right, there're Italian parsley, chives, thyme, spring onion and mixed basil.
After getting my hands dirty with mixing and planting, I waited eagerly everyday for them to sprout.

They are almost 5 months old now, my basil grew so big that I need to harvest it and transplant it into a bigger pot. I wasn't too happy that thyme didn't grow at all. So, over the Easter weekend, I bought thyme seedlings and Zimbabwe bird chili to add into my herbie family. Hopefully soon, I'll be able to harvest some really hot chili just from my backyard. Wish me luck!
