My favorite time of year is spring. I love opening all the windows and letting the breeze flow through the house. I love the smell of fresh-cut grass and morning dew, and even the sounds of bees buzzing bring a silly grin to my face.
I spend most weekends in springtime in my garden, planting veggies and herbs for fresh food all summer. There’s really nothing better than cooking with fresh ingredients, and I develop a seasonal sense of pride for cooking AND growing my own food. Plus, it’s cheaper and tastes better than grocery store produce!
Since I’m a DIY kind of girl, I figured why not share my green-thumby secrets with my sisters? I know you don’t all have elaborate gardens at home, and some of you live in apartments with no backyard at all, so I put together this tutorial for creating your own Window Box Herb Garden. Window boxes are great because they require minimal space, create a beautiful view outside your window, and allow you to keep the freshest ingredients at arm’s reach. Plus, herbs don’t need a lot of maintenance, and can be used to enhance just about every dish you can think of. Want to give it a try?

Would suggest some herbs to group together?...It looks like you've mixed mint with strawberry...what would you recommend mixing with basil or rosemary? Thanks!
