In my continuing efforts to be a gardener, ok maybe that’s setting my sites too high, to not kill plants, I decided to plant an indoor herb garden.
I found a cute rustic box at Ross that would be perfect for mason jars, so a couple of weeks ago I kicked things off with planting some cilantro. Let’s just say I am now on round two of cilantro. 😕 In looking around on Pinterest, I realized the problem may have been lack of drainage. I found this post on The Contractor Chronicles and had a duh moment! Rocks at the bottom for drainage! I so happen to have a whole yard full of gravel so I’m thinking that should work ok.
I purchased more cilantro, some garden sage, fern leaf dill and sweet mint. I’ve recently discovered that I absolutely love dill in salads and I also fall into the category of people who actually like cilantro. I’m thinking mojitos for the mint and I have no idea what to do with the sage but it looks pretty. 😀
This little garden was pretty inexpensive at $5 for the box and about $15 for the herbs (plus free rocks and recycled mason jars). Now crossing my fingers that these ones survive!
P.S. For anyone gluten-free, I made some amazing enchiladas tonight and got to use some of my cilantro. 😉 They’re made with zucchini instead of tortillas. Check them out here on Delish.com and follow me on Pinterest for more gluten-free recipes and home projects!
