Fresh.

14 Feb

I honestly don’t think that anything makes a dish more delicious than fresh cilantro.  It’s a flavor that you just cannot get with dried cilantro.  And, honestly, that goes for pretty much all of them.  Ain’t nothin’ like the real thing, baby.

I’ve determined that I want to grow a few herbs that I can use in the kitchen but living on the third floor of a complex isn’t really conducive to, you know, a garden.  So, I’m trying to find the best way to make it happen.

I know that herbs need lots of sunlight, and, unfortunately, we don’t get much inside our house.  I am not sure of the best way to make this happen on our balcony.

I love this idea of the shoe organizer turned herb garden.  Not sure if I’m crafty enough to pull this off….I would have soil everywhere.

I’m thinking the one pot herb garden might make the most sense for our balcony.  I’m loving the chalkboard markers.  I’ve seen the cutest garden markers around pinterest…that might be another post for another day!

This is adorable!  A poultry feeder turned planter!  And, for a few extra dollars, they will throw in the seeds for you.  Love this idea.

Do you guys have any tips or tricks for me? Any ideas on the best way to have fresh herbs in an apartment?

    We have had lots of success with a balcony herb garden! We have one long, multi-herb planter and a couple of individual pots. (Don’t plant mint with anything else. It will take. over.) The key seems to be lots of water. My favorites are basil, chives and flat-leaf parsley!

      Ah! Thank you so much. I think this is the route we’re going to go. There are so many cute indoor ideas, but I think the balcony herb garden is the best bet! Thanks!

Thanks for the love, y'all!
