Herbology 101


I have been craving my own herb garden for a few weeks now and this weekend I finally decided to just go for it, especially since Trader Joe's had a basil plant on sale for less than the regular packaged basil! I ended up planting basil, Italian parsley, mint, and chives.

Here are some tips for planting your own potted herb garden: 1) buy a large enough planter to allow the herbs and their roots enough space to grow, 2) scatter rocks on the bottom of the planter for easier drainage, 3) make sure to buy the correct type of soil (I have been told that organic soil is much better for herbs), and 4) don't forget to water your new lovely greens!

Happy Monday!!
