Gardening is not something that comes easily to me. You see, I am much better at killing plants then at keeping them alive. If they ever start a business for plant assassins, I am the man. All I have to do is try to take care of a plant for a week, and it is dead within a day. Nonetheless, I have been trying to grow an indoor herb garden for the past several months, and have finally met with a bit of success. It was not natural to me, but I am so glad that I have done it. It is one of the most rewarding projects I have ever undertaken.
I would not have come up with the idea of indoor herb gardening except for a friend who is an amazing chef. I thought I was a decent cook, but my food tastes bland compared to hers. One night, she had me over for dinner. After a particularly excellent feast, I asked what her secret was. She told me that it was her indoor herb garden. She should be some of her herbs and let me smell them. They had delicious fragrances. There is no comparison between them and the freeze-dried herbs that I usually used.
Unfortunately, I had no idea how to grow garden. She gave me some advice, but it didn’t really help that much. I don’t know what it is. I followed all of her watering advice, I kept the plants that were supposed to be in the shade in the shade, and the plants that were supposed to be in the sun in the sun. Nevertheless, my indoor herb garden was not coming along. It took me months and months to figure it out, and by than anyone else would have given up.
I am more persistent than most, however. When I decided to have an indoor herb garden, I would have an indoor herb garden come hell or high water. Finally, my efforts paid off. I cooked my first meal with indoor garden herbs yesterday. It was Rosemary chicken, and it was absolutely delicious. I put a sprig of time in the potatoes, cooked the chicken with the rosemary, and even made a salad complete with sage and lavender. Indoor herb gardens are the most rewarding gardening project that there is. There are many plants that look beautiful, but how many plants also taste beautiful?
