DIY Herb Garden

Last year for my birthday Matt gave me a herb garden. We decided to wait until the next spring (now) to plant it to reap full use out of it.

This past weekend we planted our herbs and I love them already! They have inspired a lemon and thyme chicken recipe as well as daily cups of mint tea.

The herbs we planted are: basil (for pesto), lemon thyme, tarragon, sage, mint, and peppermint. We bought our boxes at Home Depot and our herbs from Sobeys and Summerhill Market.

The planting was so easy and the herb garden really only needs to be watered weekly and it will be fine, especially with all this rain we are getting lately. I'm looking forward to cooking with my herbs this summer! Plus it's nice our little balcony actually has a use now!
