Special Delivery

As part of my 2011 Garden Madness, I purchased a set of herbs from Burpee. I ordered these back in February when I was first bit by the gardening bug.

Finally, the second to last week of April, they arrived. Burpee will ship according to zones. Apparently the end of April is the prime time to plant in Memphis.

Here is how they were packaged.

They were in great shape! I was so impressed.

The instructions say to let them stay inside for a day or two to get adjusted to its new surroundings.

Unfortunately, it took me over a week to finally get them planted. The thyme was looking a little sad after being inside for a full week. Hopefully it will turn around and start looking more alive.
