My Window Herb Garden

My apartment has south facing windows, which makes it SO HOT and blindingly bright. Sometimes I have to wear sunglasses indoors, and the wall of mirrors doesnt help matters! So I figured I might as well take advantage of living in a greenhouse and grow some herbs.

I’ve been collecting some potted herbs for the past few days. I bought some at the farmer’s market, some at Home Depot, and some more at my local florist. I was looking for the perfect pot to replant them in so I could leave them on my window sill and have fresh herbs everyday. The florist had her herbs in these glass square bowls, and she told me that with a few stones below the soil for drainage, the herbs would be just fine in one of those.

Im growing: Basil, Mint, Oregano, and Thyme. I have Rosemary growing in a separate pot because it has different watering needs. I put the Oregano and Mint at the edges because they tend to flop sideways, while the Basil and Thyme will stay more upright. For instructions on a fool-proof herb garden go HERE.

I cant wait to make dinner tonight!
