Quick tip: starting a herb garden

Want to start a herb garden but not sure where to start?

When you have a recipe that calls for fresh herbs to be added, instead of paying $5 a bunch for some limp leaves, spend the $5 on a small plant to stick in a pot by the door or plant straight into your garden. $10 will get you a more established plant like this thyme I’ve planted today. I can snip of the handful of leaves I need and it will keep growing ready for next time.

On today’s menu? Soup made with this fresh thyme, carrots from the garden and leftovers from yesterday’s rooster.

  1. Definitely cheaper to buy a bunch of seeds and plants. We have chives in the garden already but potted up some mint ,rosemary , coriander plants and also some lavender seeds. However the lavender won’t be ready to use until next year. Sometimes it takes patience but it will be worth it in the end!
