weekly simple eco tip, 3.13

With spring comes the blooming of plants all over.

Why not plant your own herbs, instead of constantly buying packaged herbs from the store? 


If you regularly cook with herbs, it is so convenient to always have a supply on hand. I planted two small stalks of basil last summer, and they provided me with so many fragrant leaves until they died this winter (I can't say I'm the best at having plants come back season to season). The small plants cost about $6 total from a local nursery, and I had the old recycling bin already lying around.

You can create a small herb garden with basil, thyme, rosemary, oregano or any other herb you love!

Very soon I will be starting up an herb garden for this year, and I will attempt to branch out beyond just basil.
