This is a guest post by Melissa K Norris at CindyWoodsall.com. Melissa and her family attempt to live a simpler life like the Amish. The Amish grow most of their own food. That, of course, includes fruits, vegetables and herbs. But not everyone can have a big garden. In this post Melissa shares how you can have a small kitchen window sill herb garden. Her focus is on using herbs for cooking.
The advantage of a kitchen window garden is that you can have the wonderful taste of fresh herbs no matter how small your living space is.
Melissa shares 6 tips for growing kitchen window herbs. She has tips for:
- selecting the right herbs
- growing herbs from seed or starter plant
- selecting the right pot
- care and maintenance of the herbs
- harvesting the herb in the right way (some you pick from the top, others from the bottom)
- cooking with herbs.
You can get organic herb seeds at Mountain Rose Herbs.
