Starting a herb garden

herb1I love fresh herbs in my cooking and having them at hand makes it a joy to cook with them.  Starting a herb garden is not a difficult task and I got everything from the local hardware store.

On my trip to the hardware store I bought some self watering rectangular pots, seeds, seedling and a large pot of various herbs.  The seedlings consisted of thyme, oregano, cos lettuce and perennial basil.   I didn’t sow any seeds as it was the wrong time of the year.  Keep posted for details.

I also purchased a ready to use bunch of basil from the local food market that had all of this roots in place.  This was going to be an experiment.  My wife told me it wasn’t going to work so it is my mission to make it work.

The large pot was a great bargain as it included spinach, rocket, mint, parsley and coriander.

The self watering rectangular pots came in a few colours but I preferred these red ones.  The beauty of these pots was that they are self watering and have no water tray.  This means I don’t have to worry about water overflows in my kitchen.

I will keep you posted on the progress of these herbs.
