Growing Herbs Indoors From Seeds
Growing herbs indoors from seeds has many benefits. First off it’s cheaper to buy seeds than to buy the plants. All the seeds won’t grow into a plant but most of them will and you’ll have many plants for a small investment. Rather than one plant for more month than the that pack of seeds. You can trade the extra plants to your neighbors or take them to the farmers market to sell.
Growing them indoors makes it easy if you want to cook with them daily. You can enjoy the herbs more because they are right at your fingertips. You won’t have to trek out to the garden just to grab a pinch of parsley to your soup on the stove.
It is also just as easy to harvest herbs and freeze them for future use. Plus, with the constant growing conditions that is provided to plants in indoor conditions, you don’t have to worry about winterizing herb plants that don’t survive the winter weather conditions.
They now have really cool herb garden kits you can buy. They are small and compact. Some hang from the window. They are great for small spaces or apartments.
Growing your own herbs is so much fun. I’ve added little springs of lemon balm to my summer water to give me a bust of energy. I stuff mint up my nose because it smells so good (not really but I do grab some and sniff it on summer days) I use mint in teas and my water. I love peppermint when I have a headache.
Herbs are fun to grow from seed and watch them turn into a wonderful healing garden. It will make your heart sing just looking at it. So take a chance this year and grow some herbs. Learn every thing you can about the plants and if they have any healing properties. I love my herb garden! So will you!
