Before & After

A few weekends ago, my mom and I went to an herb festival in Sand Springs, OK.  Apparently it's pretty popular because there were so many people there who all knew exactly what they were doing; they even had wagons to cart their purchases to the car and everything.  Serious business.  Mom bought a new aloe vera plant and I bought some basil and oregano. 

Once we got home, mom dug up an old pot for my little herbs.  And after some cleaning and new white paint...

 Ta da! 

I only hope I can keep them alive long enough to use in a recipe!
Wish me luck.
