My housemate and I were fixing up our deck and we randomly decided to green-up the house a bit by starting a mini herb garden. Cool thing is, most of the stuff that we used was laying around as trash or in the storage underneath our house which was left by previous tenants.
Here are some of the plants we got:
Basil – Yum, goes with anything. Use it as a garnish, stir-fry with it, put it in your sandwich, etc.
Mint – Refreshing smell, great with tea, great with beverages in general
Sage – Smells wonderful, great with tea
Geraniums – Lighten up the deck with some color
Aloe – Good for your skin
Rosemary – Smells great, You can use it for tea and it’s apparently good for your hair
Lavender – Smells awesome, you can make equally awesome-smelling food and garnishes
Parsely – YUM
Chives – YUMMMMM.
Home garden, check.
