Windowsill Herb Garden
I seem to be an eternal optimist when it comes to gardening! I've wanted to do more with fresh herbs and was inspired to make it a reality over the weekend. I bought the plants but everything else was on hand - the zinc box was a gift from my Mom and I'd been using it to store essential oils but thought it would be perfect for this use!
The candle pedestal was from our wedding and my sister gave me the enamel cup for Christmas!
I love this post on ideas for preserving herbs for use later but am also eager to hear your ideas for using fresh herbs - we won't have any trouble using the mint, we can never get enough in this house!
Herbs I planted are: rosemary, thyme, basil, parsley, mint and oregano. I'm thinking maybe fresh homemade bread with herbs in it and/or pesto on the side!
Also, do you any of you grow herbs indoors or do you find outdoors is better? I'm all ears!
P.S. Later I added a cute tag with Scripture to the thyme!
