This will be the third year I have had my own container herb garden, and let me tell you, I’m a huge fan. They take very little work and give you tasty herbs all season long for the same price you would have paid at the store buying a pack of herbs that will die before you use them all. That’s a score in my book.
They aren’t all fun and games…you have to be careful not to water them too much or too little, not to let critters like squirrels get to them, cut them back when they get tall, and most importantly, guys, don’t rape your tiny herb plant for all the herbs it’s worth in one sitting, because it will die. And if you let your drunk chef friends anywhere near this herb garden, they will do just that. Right, Matt?
