I’ve never had a green thumb, but I was determined at the start of Spring to grow some herbs in our kitchen! It seems like most recipes I make call for some fresh herbs, but when I buy them at the store, I never use them all. I wanted to share this for anyone who is at all intimidated by potting your own, because I am majorly kicking myself for not doing this sooner! 😉
Also, obsessed with this cargo dress, so cute for spring (and also practical, because #pockets).
Step 1: Pick your herbs. I grabbed these from Home Depot for about $4 each, and chose the ones I use most often: cilantro, mint, parsley & green onion.
Step 2: Pick your planter. I thought it would be easiest to pot them all together, since I don’t have a window behind my kitchen sink, I knew I might have to move them around the house a bit to catch the best light (currently they live in the dining room or in the laundry room window). I found this pot for under $30 that could hold four small plants & came with the cutest scissors for cutting them! I couldn’t pass it up!
Step 3: Fill the bottom of your planter with about an inch of potting soil. Using a pot of water, dip the entire bottom of the herb in the water, and then snuggle it up inside the planter. Do this for all of the herbs, and top off with a bit of potting soil.
Step 4: Watch them grow! They like lots of light & to be watered whenever the top of the soil feels dry. Or at least that’s what the sweet lady at the store told me. 😉
So easy! And we have already used them every night this week. Now if we can only figure out what we are going to plant outside! Let us know if you have any favorites that are easy to keep alive! XO
