I could not wait for spring to come so I could plant my herb garden. I spent all winter working on a plan for my herb garden. Where do I put it, where do I plant them, do I plant them in containers, which ones do I plant, will they be easily accessible, etc.? I finally had a plan... I would plant them in a tiered planter (willowhouse.com), I would put the planter on the front porch over on the side where we don't have anything, and I would plant my favorite herbs that I use quite often. I decided to plant: parsley, cilantro, rosemary, chives, oregano, and thyme. These are the herbs that I use the most when cooking so I figured they were a good start.
Shawn and I bought seeds to plant the herbs a few weeks ago and they grew fine until our cat got a hold of them. Since it is warmer outside and time to plant them outside, we opted to get the plants to put in the planter this go round. I am excited we did this because I am already able to use the herbs we planted! :)
This was a very fun project and I hope you will think about starting your own herb garden. All you need is a few plants, dirt, and a planter or pots to start. Very easy and fun to use! :)
