I love having fresh herbs on hand. I use a lot of herbs in my cooking and I love to make herb lemon water. Even though I live in California, the winter months do get a little cooler and make it a little challenging to grow herbs outdoors. So I love to make little indoor herb gardens in the winter months. I keep them up on the windowsill in my kitchen so they are readily available. I love to place them in a Monica Potter Home Barn Box for a cute rustic feel. Here’s how I made mine.
HERE’S WHAT YOU NEED:
- Rocks, gravel, pebbles, or marbles
- Glass containers ( I used MPH candle jars)
- Potting mix, preferably moisture control
- Herb markers
- MPH Large Vintage Barn Box
Start by adding about 2 inches of pebbles to your glass jar.
Next, fill the jar with potting mix leaving a hole in the center to plant the herb.
Plant your herbs and top with a small handful of potting mix. Lightly water the top of the soil.
Place indoor near a windowsill so that it receives ample sunlight.
