What a way to celebrate the first blogiversary by Wendy in a post dated 17th of July 2010. A high school counselor by day and a landscape architect by night in her dreams as she describes herself, Wendy did a 1st blogiversary giveaway! .
I received the giveaway seeds recently and never thought it is going to be that many. Out of the 20 seed types, three are grown for flowers and the rest are fairly standard vegetables.

We thought, trying out Thyme first will be a good idea. After going through the information available, growing thyme is not going to be an easy one. First, it will take 3 weeks at least for thyme to germinate. Somehow that will coincide with Hari Raya celebration which requires us to be away for a few days. We don't want baby seedlings to cry and die hungry. Knowing that thyme have excellent fragrance and antibacterial elements, the adventure should be worthwhile...
