How To : City Herb Garden

Last year, I decided it was time for me to grow my own vegetables and herbs. WHY? because no word of a lie, fresh garden herbs and veg bring joy and happiness to your everyday cooking.

I started off by heading into Little Portugal and Little Italy to find herb plants. I was thinking of starting off with seeds but the process would be a bit more time consuming.

Find plants that do not need a lot of sun and can survive on your balcony.

My picks:

  • tomatoes
  • Chilli peppers
  • Kale
  • Rosemary
  • Thyme
  • Basil
  • Curry
  • Dill

I planted all of these in 3 large plant potters.

If you are into growing your own vegetables, there are some that actually grow amazingly well in pots. All need a lot of sunshine 🙂

  • kale
  • lettuce
  • carrots
  • tomatoes
  • chilli peppers
  • sweet peppers
  • chives

Spring and Summer are by far the most enjoyable time of the year – Make sure to eat local ❤
