Can I keep these alive?

On Tuesdays and Thursdays, I post a picture and just a few words.

I’ve got kind of a black thumb to begin with, and my house is distressingly short of bright, sunny windows in the wintertime (darn trees!).

But these were marked down at Aldi the other week, so I’m gonna give it a shot.

I’ve used fresh sage before (in the spatchcocked turkey I made for Thanksgiving last year), but I’ve actually never used fresh thyme.  I’m looking forward to giving it a try, though.

Any tips for keeping thyme and sage alive indoors?

Daffodils are perfect for me.

We’ve established before that I am very not awesome at gardening, but despite that fact, our daffodils manage to be beautiful each year.  (Mostly because they require no attention. ;) )

And voles don’t eat them, which is the main survival requirement for anything in our yard.

P.S. I found this helpful list of bulbs that voles hate. Based on this, I’m definitely not wasting money on tulips anymore and I think I might add some muscari to our yard this fall.
