The best part about cooking is experimenting with all of the different herbs and spices. If you consider yourself a culinary adventurer, or even just an aspiring one, summer is the best season to get started on taking your cooking skills to the next level. Herbs, like us, love warm weather and lots of sunshine. The perfect place to grow herbs is actually right on your balcony in a summer container.
If you have a south-facing balcony or windowsill, that would be an ideal spot for your herb garden, but any sunny spot will likely do. Fill a container (or two! Or many!) with your favorite herbs and let the sun get to work growing delicious herbs for summer dishes. Rosemary, oregano, basil, parsley, cilantro, and more can be grown right in your home. The best part is that these fresh herbs are right within reach of your kitchen, so your cooking is never interrupted.
An herb container garden not only enhances your dishes but it can also save you time and money. Even the most experienced culinary adventurers find themselves making those last-minute dashes to the store to grab a forgotten ingredient, but growing your own herbs means fewer trips to the market. This makes your cooking inherently less wasteful, so herb containers can be an excellent addition to the list of eco-friendly home hacks.
Summer is in full swing, but that doesn’t mean it’s too late to start your own herb container. Regardless of how experienced you are, Pleasant View Gardens is here to help you create the perfect herb container for your cuisine and lifestyle. Contact us to learn more or to talk to an expert!
