Have you started planning your summer garden? Do you plant herbs in your garden?
Today I’m sharing a gardening tip with you on the best herbs to grow for cooking. Herbs are easy to grow and are a great addition to any vegetable garden and you don’t really need a lot of space either.
You can start with a few pots on the back deck or add a few plants in a flowering bed. Herbs are a magnet for bees and butterflies which is what every garden needs to flourish.
The main reason people grow herbs at home is for the taste. Fresh herbs make recipes taste better and are great to have on hand for soups, stews, salads and marinades. Here are five of my favorite herbs to grow every season that I love to use in my recipes when cooking.
Before we get started with this list, here’s a tip to help you with growing herbs. Keep in mind that they need a good four to six hours of sun daily. So walk around your garden or back yard and see where the sunniest place is…that’s where you want your herbs to grow.
I went looking for a photo of my herbs from last year but of course I didn’t take any. Here’s a photo from a few years ago. My hubby built my garden shed awhile ago and then he added this pull down shelf on the side for us to use when we’re grilling or for when I’m planting. I sort of took over the shelf and put my potted herb here. The herbs get the perfect amount of sun in this spot.
