Isn’t it a glorious day to go gardening? I would be more glorious if you have even a small herb garden.
You don’t really need a ton of skills to build a garden. Just like many things, you can always start small. Instead of going big on your first try, why not begin with a small herb garden.
We know what you’re thinking.
“Why on earth would I want a herb garden of all other things?”
It may be hard to believe for some people but there are actually a lot of perks for owning a herb garden.
Sure flower, rock, or even vegetable gardens look a lot more appealing. And after all, one of the primary purposes of owning a garden is to add visual interest to the house.
In this post, we are going to tell you a whole bunch of reasons why you want to have a herb garden at home.
1. It Adds More Flavor To Your Cooking
Sometimes the reason people to decide to have a garden isn’t that of the sake of gardening itself. There is so much more to gardening than watering the plants or having a beautiful backyard.
You might find yourself staring at a supposed-to-be delicious stew. But you have been eating the same dish for over a week now. You just wish you could chew on something that tastes a whole different, better even.
And then it hits you. One way to add more to flavor to your stew is by using herbs and spices. But where on earth would you get some?
What if it’s a special day, a holiday or whatnot, there might not be enough storage in the supermarket.
From then on, you know just what to do. Why don’t you start a herb garden? In that case, you won’t ever have to worry about plain tasting food ever again. Nor will you have to worry about running out of storage in the grocery store ever again. Aside from the practicality, it adds more class to your backyard.
2. It Lessens Your Food Expenses
True. Herbs and spices aren’t exactly the kind of food you want to serve on your dinner table. Still, it isn’t something you’d want to leave the grocery store without.
Admit it. Without these herbs and spices, your cooking won’t be as good. It may not seem like it, but when you sum it up, the amount you pay for these products can be surprising.
Sure, with your small business and your husband’s promotion, herbs and spices aren’t really the kind of expenditures you would worry about.
But just think about it. In this time and age, you wouldn’t want to lessen their expenses on food. A herb garden would only require a bit of watering every day.
And when your efforts finally bare fruit, you won’t have to drive to the grocery store for some additives. You can grab a few just from your backyard.
3. Getting Started With Gardening
At the end of the day, I guess the most important part of having a herb garden is the experience you get out of it.
If you’re a complete novice in gardening, this is an excellent way to up your knowledge a bit. Who knows? Maybe in the future, you can turn gardening into an actual source of living.
Aside from that, having a herb garden is a great way to educate children about caring for the environment and nature.
4. A Herb Garden Helps You Make New Friends
Who would have thought having a herb garden will help you earn new friends? Well, it won’t do that directly but when you have a whole stash of herbs and spices around you’ll have enough for yourselves and maybe even a few more to pass over to your neighbors. Before you know it, they’ll be jumping from their seats to offer you help as well.
