Am I Green Thumb or All Thumbs?

Guard your gardens, world. I'm preparing to document my pitiful attempt at cultivating life. Yesterday I bought my first seed packages and today I planted my babies in their starter pots. I chose the plants I consider most useful to the kitchen: red currant tomatoes and basil genovese.

Since the first hours yield nothing more to photograph than dirt, I've decided to only post pictures pending my success next week. Until then, I leave you with this little factoid — basil is actually a member of the mint family. See? Already a more knowledgeable gardener.
