And it’s fun! (and especially fun to share this experience with kids, if you have them!)
If you don’t want to plans your own, you can buy ready-to-go fresh herb pots at most garden stores.
Here are some tips: some herbs – like basil, cilantro, dill and mint – can easily be grown from seed. Other perennial herbs – like thyme and rosemary – are best started from small plants. 🌿🍃🌱
Most herbs get a healthier start at life with a lot of light, so try putting them in a south-facing window to get the most natural light possible.
Make sure the’ soil is kept slightly damp but doesn’t get soggy. Once your herbs are beyond the seedling stage, plants from warmer climates (rosemary, thyme, basil) do better staying in south-facing windows, while cooler-weather herbs (mint, chives and parsley) do better in east- and west-facing windows.
Having fresh herbs on-hand helps jazz up your recipes!
Try tossing dill, cilantro or basil into simple scrambled eggs, add some dill to your tuna, cilantro into homemade salsas, and mint into your tea. Yum!
