Our indoor herb garden

My dear husband is the cook in our family, I’m so blessed  😉  He loves using seasonings and herbs in his cooking, but we haven’t always been able to get fresh herbs from the big box stores.

Since we have started this homesteading journey, I wanted to plant an herb garden in the kitchen so he can have a fresh supply of what he uses most when preparing our meals!  I am a gardener at heart (I really should have been born in the 1800s and lived on the prairie) so I planted our starter herbs today!

We will have Cilantro, Sage, Basil, Thyme, Rosemary, and Oregano! I also picked up some lavender seeds that I am going to plant outside – for our eye pleasure, to cut and use in many diy recipes, and for the nesting boxes in our coop!

I’m happy with my little greenhouse…until I can have a “real” one!

(Our “farm dog” Mike was very curious!)

    1. They are still tiny right now, but I’ll definitely keep you updated as they grow! We have a window that gets the morning sun in the kitchen so that’s where they will be when I plant them in the pots!
