spring is in the air and nothing feels more like spring more than planting some fresh flowers and herbs! this year, i have decided to plant a creative herb garden in my kitchen. i have been scouring the web to find some inspiration for this upcoming project and have come across some amazing, clever, and beautiful ideas. these are my top ten indoor herb garden ideas!
everyone grows a garden for a different reason. maybe it brings back memories of being outside with you mom. maybe its for the homegrown fruits and vegetables. maybe its to teach your children about the world around them. for me – its all of these things. i remeber planting and grooming the garden by my childhood home and the excitement when the fruits of our labor began to grow and the proud feeling of enjoying them in a family meal. we grew lots of things but my favorite were the squash, tomatoes, and snap beans (remember this post from like forever ago? lol- dont judge!! it was one of the first ever i think!)
recently, we have enjoyed time in the yard as a family weeding and planting around our house. we dont have anything elaborate but we like to plant some seasonal flowers and weed around the annuals and perennials to keep them looking nice. we use Miracle-Gro each spring to give our yard a boost in the prime growing season. its so fun to see the bright burst of green and those first flowers break through!
the great thing about gardening is that you grow a LOT more than just fruits, vegetables, flowers, and herbs – you grom memories. you grow relationships. you grow knowlege and appreciation for nature. our goal this year is to grow a vegetable garden outside and an indoor herb garden. we are starting with a simple kitchen herb garden- it is coming along and i can’t wait to share!
i would love to hear YOUR stories– what was your first experience gardening? why did you/do you love it so much? what is your favorite thing to grow?
