I love fresh herbs in my food and try to use them whenever possible.
But buying fresh herbs at the grocery store isn’t a hassle. It’s propped up there near the fresh produce. Usually there’s too much in the package for my needs and the rest goes to waste in the refrigerator. So enter my miniature herb garden.
It’s within easy reach on my kitchen windowsill and include my two favorite herbs: basil and thyme. Basil has multiple uses including paninis and pasta, and I use the thyme especially for marinades and poultry seasoning.
The windowsill herbs are a relatively new addition to the kitchen. Due to a lack of a backyard, they were grown on the patio but were infested with ants and dust. And prior to the windowsill, I actually contemplated the AeroGarden Herb Kit. But found the whole set-up too big and ugly. The whole hydroponics thing just smells of drugs to me (remember kids, just say no).
