For mother’s day, one of the things my hubby did was order supplies to build me a special herb garden in the kitchen. The plan I have is a somewhat innovative (?) use of space and I’m looking forward to chronicling the process of getting it set up. I don’t actually use a lot of fresh herbs and my desire for this garden is mostly aesthetic but hopefully having them handy will encourage me to liven up my dishes!

In the mean time while we await our order, I have been enjoying these other ideas for indoor herb gardens that take up no space at all.

Even with the tiniest amount of space you can make room for some fresh herbs.

The problem with most of these is that they require attention. As in, you actually have to remember to give them water frequently. Not killing plants is not my forte so Steve is setting me up with a garden that has a reservoir of water that I only have to fill occasionally. Phew! I’m looking forward to mojitos, tomato basil salad,  and other herby fresh treats this summer!
