Rooting cut herbs from the grocery store

     We bought a bundle of fresh thyme from the grocery store to put in our Butternut Squash. Grand put the thyme in a small cup of water to keep it fresh. As Grand picked off bits of it to use in her dishes, it seemed to be growing. We looked at it yesterday and found out that it had rooted, right there on the windowsill! Who knows how long it had been picked? It had to be shipped to the store too. Plants are so wonderful! Below are some pictures of the amazing herb. We are planning on planting it in a pot on the windowsill, that way we can pick it all winter. We will plant the thyme in the garden this spring. We'll keep you posted on how the thyme does.
