Easy To Maintain Herb Garden
This will be our third Spring season in our home!, I am determined to spend a lot of this year outdoors and taking full advantage of it. More so now, since Baylor is at the perfect listening (& not listening 😉 age to be outside getting dirty! This past year I have been cooking A LOT, it’s so much fun! Well.. and my husband and I LOVE FOOD! I have realized that seasons have “trending herbs,” herbs that are often used in recipes that are popular during that season. I love having my new herbs growing right in the kitchen. I can cut them off when I need them and have fresh tasting food all the time! I purchased Thyme, Mint, and Parsley. I actually found them pre-planted in the Meijer produce section for just over $2. The fourth is a tiny easy to maintain plant. So yes I cheated:)
I am interested to see how this works. I have read that these plants need drainage, and as you can tell there isn’t any with these mason jars. I did purchase a soil that controls if you over or under water the plant, overwatering is the number one killer of indoor plants. Simply push your finger into the soil about a 1/4 inch, if moist do not water.
Find a sun loving spot for your plants, place them accordingly. Extremely sun loving plants, place closer to the sun, partial sun loving plants, place towards the back of your display.
Follow the cutting and watering instructions that come with the plant also:)

Its hard to picture spring, especially today. Technically its just 16 days away. Hopefully by then the snow will stop coming, so we can plant outdoors. For now stay warm and cozy, Thanks for reading:)
