Jump Start on Spring – Indoor Kitchen Herb Garden
Well, I couldn’t stand it anymore. I keep seeing snow, then brown grass, then snow! I keep staring out my kitchen window where my round perennial garden is dreaming of when I can go dig in the dirt. I needed a touch of spring the other day, so I decided to get a jump on my herb garden. I found seeds that I had kept from last year – some from my own garden and some from a seed company.
I love working with fresh herbs and am always surprised by what you can do with them. My list keeps growing in recipes that a bunch of fresh herbs can be added to for extra flavor! Whether you are making a salad, homemade meatloaf, stuffing a whole chicken, or rubbing some herbs on a steak for the grill, you can never seem to have enough on hand in the winter.
Have you also noticed how expensive fresh herbs can be in the store? Think about it. You aren’t buying rosemary and thyme by the pound…you are buying it by the ounce. That means when you purchase herbs individually every time you need them, that little container or bundle of herbs can add up pretty quick. Buying herbs isn’t cheap. So why buy them when they are so easy to grow?
Keep an indoor garden of basil, parsley, or any herb you like in a container or small pots on your kitchen counter for year round use.
Here are my herbs only a few days later! Can’t wait to start using them!
