House to Home part 2!
I was ACTUALLY cooking last week. I needed Oregano, and didn't have any! Kind of annoying when you're on a roll. So over the weekend I decided to make an indoors herb garden.
I asked my dad if he'd accompany me to Home Depot, because it's a bit overwhelming.
My dad never misses a chance to go to Home Depot :)
So I bought 3 different herbs; Basil, Oregano, and Cilantro. I bought an 18 inch rectangular pot, indoor potting soil, and some plant food. The plants I bought were pretty awesome because their pots were environmentally friendly, meaning they weren't plastic and you could just rip the bottom off and plant them.
I put the plants in the big pot inside the house because it was cold out, but I wouldn't suggest doing this because the potting soil is messy.
So after I planted them I read on Martha that you should plant each plant in it's own pot!
Oops! Oh well! Note to self - check Martha.com before doing any thing!! But my Aunt Jackie planted an indoor herb garden and she used only one pot and she's a pretty clever one, so it's tough to say who's right! ;)
While at Home Depot I reminded my dad the last time I tried to grow plants I was 10 years old. He bought all the stuff for me and I was all excited. One of the plants we bought was catnip and we put the plants in pots on our old deck, and every morning I'd go out and every morning the neighborhood cats had attacked the catnip. My dad just laughed and shook his head.
Thank goodness he's a good sport!
So there you! Even if you aren't an amazing chef or in to making home remedies, the herbs smell really good and the green really brightens up the room!Pin It
