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.

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.

    Enjoyed your blog. We live in an apartment but your article on herbs interested me very much. I find you are very down to earth when discussing your animals and how to earn a little extra income. I grew a pepper plant on our balcony this past summer and actually got 2 good sized peppers. Next year I may try cucumbers. Thanks again.

      Yay! Congrats on the peppers! We tried to dry our peppers this year, first in the truck on cookie tins. That didn’t work out so well. They never did get dry. Then we cut them into really thin strips and put them in the oven. That worked! Took a while but now I have a tiny jar of dried peppers that I can add to soups.
