Grow Spring Grow!

When I headed out to my mini deck garden today to get some parsley for my lovely rice soup I realize this could be a good thing to share with you.

Not only does having plants improve your life it's also a great way to save a buck or two if you focus on cultivating a vegetable garden (for those with time, patience, and a green thumb) or some potted herbs and a lovely rosebush for people like me!

I grew 5 different kinds of herbs last year, but I never used them enough to keep them from overgrowing, so I decided on two this year - Parsley and Cilantro(Coriander.) It's been working out great and it's so nice to just grab a tablespoon or two and not waste half of a huge bunch.

I bought the plants for 3 or 4 bucks each and used 39 cent planters to give them bigger pots. I'll have nice fresh herbs all summer long and hopefully into the winter! What a savings!

With Vancouver's community gardens program, potential green thumbs would get a kick out of a great space work work on your craft, even if you live in an apartment.
