My first attempt at growing an herb garden began five days ago. I have never been one to have a so-called “green thumb”, but I have wanted an herb and vegetable garden for some time now. My Christmas present from my husband was that he would build me a planter box. I suggested a kit or a partially-assembled box, but he wanted to do everything by hand. Due to life and busy schedules, the planter was finished four months later. But holy cow is looked great!
I planted cilantro, mint, basil, mixed lettuces, and a strawberry plant. I am excited to give this a go and I will keep you updated on the progress and hopefully will have photos of healthy plants growing. I am also excited to use my own grown herbs in recipes and will provide delicious uses for the ingredients.
