It’s official… I started my herb garden. Its rather small at the moment, with only two herbs, chives and thyme. Eventually, I will be adding a few more herbs to the garden (Oregano, Basil, Mint, Rosemary, Parsley, Dill and if possible Garlic). I use the term garden lightly; at the moment its just a window sill flower pot.
I have no idea if I have a “green thumb.” I know some herbs are like weeds, so those should be easy to grow. If anyone has any suggestions, I would appreciate the help. My thought behind such a garden, is hopefully it will be more economical. I’ve priced a few herbs from various places and companies, and long term will be more economical to grow my own. It is currently costing about $15 every two weeks, to maintain an adequate supply of most of the herbs. I wont be using any pesticides/chemicals, so by definition it will be Organic. So far, I spent approximately $10 towards the herb garden.
Hopefully the luck of the Irish will rub off.
