D.I.Y. Window Sill Herb Garden




How many times have you purchased herbs and it spoils before you can even use it. I have a solution. My latest obssesion is windsill herb garden. I am hooked. You can grow garlic, sweet potatoes, sage, onions, parsley, mint and more. Here's an easy way to save money, help the environment and grow your vegetables. You don't need a green thumb and it take no time. Here's how I started my windowsill garden.

What you'll need.

1 Small clear container
1 garlic bud or buds of green onions
1/2 cup of water (or less)

  • Use a clear container it helps you see when the water needs to be changed and you can watch the roots grow.

  • Do not submerge the cloves or green onions in water they will become cloudy, smelly and will begin to rot.

  • Add just enough water to cover the bottom of the cup and touches just the bottom of the cloves.

Your budding garlic cloves and green onions will start to sprout in just a few days. It's a cool little hobby and a great way to save money on vegetables.
 The same applies to herbs like sage, basil and mint. Just snip at the stem of the given plant and place it in a clear container of water. In a few days you will begin to seem roots. In a month, you can plant in a pot of soil or just contunie to water.

No more spoiled green onions or brown herb leaves. Fresh ingredients from your window sill.
Enjoy the fruits of your labor.
