If you have been buying those fresh packaged herbs at the grocery store, a great way to save a lot of money—grow your own.
If you have a foot of deck space you can have an herb garden- well, at least pot or two. We’ve planted some basics like basil, rosemary, thyme, sage, mint and chives. There are many other types of herbs so, if you are feeling creative, experiment with some others. You’ll just have to keep an eye on them and water occasionally if it hasn’t rained. Just clip what you need and viola… fresh herbs for cheap!
Fresh herbs make everything taste so much better. Add a sprig of mint to your iced tea or lemonade, or to mixed fresh berries and melon. Basil and tomatoes are a must. For example, use your fresh grown basil on our easy Caprese Salad- with local tomatoes from the farmer’s market. Or add the basil to your favorite pasta dish. Grilled chicken with rosemary and or thyme adds a whole new dimension to the same old chicken breast.
