We have a (new) herb garden that we are really enjoying – we love to cook with fresh herbs, and it’s also just fun to have such delicious smelling things around! If you can properly care for your herbs (not too hard), the initial investment of $3-5 per plant is a lot more frugal than a big jar of dried herbs.
We bought our herbs from the farmer’s market, but you can buy them at your home improvement store, or at a plant store.
Here is our little garden…. so far, we have (from left) Sage, Basil, Thyme, and Cilantro.
