Herb Garden

Do you grow herbs in your garden or containers? I was inspired to see so many herbs still available at the farmer’s market this past weekend. I didn’t buy any, though, because my hands were sticky from eating a cinnamon roll!

I have always wanted to grow more herbs in my garden to have fresh pickings available for cooking, drying and preserving in winter.

I have also wanted to try growing a small kitchen herb garden in the window sill, but I’ve never taken the time to find the right size containers that would work in our kitchen. Wouldn’t it be nice to have a small kitchen garden to tend over winter? Do you grow an indoor herb garden in the winter months?

I grew basil this past summer, which we used a lot. My cilantro didn’t make it because of the heat and drought we had. I think I would like to grow parsley, cilantro, basil, oregano, rosemary, thyme, and chives.

Herbs are on my list to illustrate as a new collection of stationery and paper products, so now I’m even more motivated to grow a successful herb garden.

Thanks for stopping by!
