Why I was hauling dirt up the stairs...

After a wonderful dream about my future, perfect house, I realized that I needed to learn how to garden. So, despite the fact that I only have a balcony, I went out and bought a bunch of containers, herbs, flowers, and vegetables.

I shopped at Lowe's and Home Depot for all the supplies. Overall, it was pretty inexpensive to start. This is what I currently have planted:
  • Marigolds
  • Italian Parsley
  • Sweet Basil
  • Catnip
  • Cilantro
  • Lavender
  • Mint
  • German Thyme
  • Rosemary
  • Sunflower
I'm planning on taking photos of everything at different times so I can see the progress. I am so excited and hoping that I don't kill everything. Here's a photo just after planting:
