Katie’s Gardening Tip #1

As the weather is getting cold outside it is a great time to plant an herb garden inside!  The soup kitchen where I live love fresh herbs and I deliver fresh basil every week to the cooks at the Palmetto House.

It is easy to start a small herb garden at home.  All you will need is an herb plant such as basil or cilantro.  Bonnie’s herbs are my favorites and you can find them at Home Depot, Lowes or many other stores.  You will also need some soil, a pot and a sunny spot in your home.  Plant you herbs in a pot filled with soil, with the Bonnie plants you can just tear the bottom off the peat pot and plant it. Find a sunny spot in your house and be sure to water it regularly.  It is fun, easy, smells great and you can use it at your house when your family cooks or you can do what I do … donate some to your local soup kitchen!
