My First Herb Garden

For the past couple of years, Matt and I have been able to enjoy fresh vegetables from our garden.  However, Matt is the one who put in all the work so I can’t take any credit for that.  I just did the eating.  Click here to read more about our garden!!

I was never one to have a green thumb anyway.  I enjoy nice flowers and eating fresh vegetables from a garden, but not really into maintaining it.  However, I feel different about this now.  I decided I want to take part in our garden this season but to start small, have my own little project.  I am going to have my own little herb garden.

I didn’t realize how many different herbs exist!  Like chocolate mint!  I wouldn’t even know what to do with that.  But I am keeping it simple and going with five that I will use often:

Basil

Basil

Dill

Dill

Oregano

Oregano

Parsley

Parsley

Cilantro

Normally, I am not really good at keeping plants alive.  But this is different.  I am excited to take care of my herbs and to start using them in my cooking.  I will update you throughout the summer with how the garden is going and how I will be using the herbs.  So excited to get started! 🙂
