Gifts for the Foodie: DIY Kitchen Herb Gardens

Still searching for a gift for the foodie on your list? Create an organic kitchen herb garden for the counter or sunny window. Collect all your supplies: * Organic Herbs from local farmers market (or most grocery stores are now carrying fresh options by Shenandoah Growers in the produce area as well) * Organic Potting Soil – I recently found Organic Mechanic Soil which is available main locations as well as mail order. * Your favorite container (for this project I like a wider more rectangle shapped container) * Small Shovel, Gloves (optional of course), Moss, Water Place a few inches of soil in the base of your container filling it about 3/4 of the way up. Being to place your herbs in the containers, staggering them rather than placing them in a straight line gives the containers a nicer visual as they fill in. Once the herbs are in, fill the remainder of the container with soil to the top. The dry soil will settle as you water it. Once watered place a topping of moss to retain the soils moisture. You can add labels if you wish to signify which herbs you have included. Place under the tree and wait for your next invitation to a home cooked meal by previously mentioned foodie. Enjoy this post?
