easy to grow herbs

I love cooking fresh herbs but the store bought packages are always way too much and end up tossing half of what I buy. Solution: grow you own herbs.

Step One

Use an empty egg carton and poke tiny holes in to bottom for drainage.

Step Two

Add soil to each little egg compartment filling to ¾ full.

Step Three

Press seeds into the soil just until covered and then mist or sprinkle with water.

Step Four

Place your container in a sunny location for at least 4 hours a day.

Step Five

Water according to the direction on the seed packet.

When the seed grow you can transfer to an appropriate container. This is the perfect little garden for apartment dwellers.

Check out garage sales for inexpensive containers for your new container garden or potager.
