Design that makes a difference
I am not a great cook by any stretch of the imagination. I can follow a recipe and that’s about as far as I go. Since starting my vegan journey I have been doing A LOT more cooking at home. It’s a great thing because I know that hubs and I are eating much healthier and not consuming the obnoxious volumes of processed foods and chemicals conveniently wrapped in delicious looking morsels.
One thing I’ve noticed since exploring new recipes is that many of them call for fresh herbs. I like fresh herbs. They’re pretty, tasty, delicious smelling, and add a lot to our food. But buying fresh herbs is a giant pain. Typically it goes something like this – I buy a fresh herb (or two or three) to add to a recipe and have to buy in the quantities available at the store (has anyone seen how much cilantro is in one bunch!?!?!?!?!). I use what I can for my recipes and end up with so much left over that it goes bad before I can use it again! How frustrating!!!
This has thrown me into full-fledged problem solving mode…I want an indoor herb garden. There are so many fantastic ideas out there too! It seems easy enough (despite my black-thumbed tendencies). My space is limited so I want to be wise about how I use it. I need to find something off the floor, probably wall mounted so my critters won’t eat them! Here are some of the inspirations I’ve come across:
I’m excited to get started…once I make up my mind! Send me pics of your indoor herb garden! You show me yours – I’ll show you mine!
