There are lots of ways to maximize even the tiniest of spaces to make room for herb gardens in small kitchens, a deck, or even the outside wall.
This time every year I start to think about my garden—or lack thereof.
You see, while I appreciate fresh, local ingredients, I’m just not that great at growing them myself. The green thumb of the family? Not me.
The green thumbs belong to my parents (they have a small homestead, which includes lots of produce and a flock of free-range chickens), and my sister (who started Truffula Seed Produce a few years ago, and then created and ran The Community Farm at Sandy Spring Friends School).
I’m okay with this.
Except, I do love fresh herbs.
And you know what? They’re not that difficult to grow or maintain.
You just have to make sure the herbs have enough light, give them water every now and again, and they’ll be happy little plants.
But what if you don’t have a lot of space to garden?
We live in a townhouse, so living space is already kind of tight and our backyard is pretty much nonexistent.
No worries! There are lots of ways to maximize even the tiniest of spaces for herb gardens in small kitchens, a deck, or even the outside wall.
