Grow your own herbs for a continuous supply of fresh herbs all year round. Why not? If you cook almost every day, I am sure you will love the idea of having them fresh at your fingertips.
Buying from your local market may have a minimum amount for the purchase. Worse, when the ones you need are not available. Wouldn’t you be frustrated? I know I will.
So, why are you not growing your own fresh herbs? Probably, your answer is one of the following
- • Limited space
- • Insufficient daylight or simply
- • Do NOT know how
Now, do not let the “do not know how” stop you from growing your own. Getting your hands a little bit dirty is acceptable when you know those amazing herbs enhance the flavour of the dishes. Not forgetting the nutritional value they give.
