There is nothing more delicious than the fresh vegetables from your garden. Growing your own food can be such a rewarding and enriching experience. It’s local produce at its finest!
We would all love to gather our own produce for dinner, but gardening can be a lot to take on. Before you plow up the yard, a good first step is to grow your own herbs. Herbs are not as demanding as other vegetables and typically don’t require daily attention. In fact, most herbs prefer dry soil, great news if you tend to forget about watering.
Fresh, organic herbs are not only tastier than dried herbs, but they have far more nutritional value. Fresh herbs tend to be expensive, but are almost free when you grow them yourself. Healthier and affordable…what’s not to love?
Some of our favorite herbs include basil, thyme, sage, rosemary and cilantro. We use these low-maintenance herbs in soups, in salads and on chicken. There are myriad herbs you can consider growing for personal care uses or even for making your own loose-leaf tea!
Even if you think you don’t have space for a garden, you probably do. Containers, window boxes and wall-hanging gardens are all good options if you’re short on space. There are plenty of resources online to help you get started. Check out this great guide from Sunset Magazine to learn more.
