This year Paul and I joined our local CSA. I'm so excited for my ~bushel of veggies to be delivered to my office every week. But what about the herbs... yum. I know the CSA includes a few fresh herbs once in a while, but I still plan to grow my own.
Last years basil plant was a true success. If I kept up with trimming and cutting it, it may have lasted longer. Alas, you live and learn. And 5-6 months was not a bad life span in my kitchen.
Our kitchen has a window above the sink with a curtain rod... but no curtain. What? I like the sunlight, the crappy view and the link to the outdoors (err road/strip mall). None the less... it's a perfect window to get sunlight and it's a perfect location to be close to my hands when cooking. So I decided that this spring I'll be planting some herbs inside hanging from this empty curtain rod.
So here are my thoughts....
Here is the window. It's a pretty large window right? Look at that light? (Don't look at the mess of a kitchen or ugly paint color and cabinets).

I also thought something like this could look cute hanging - and you could fill it with cute colorful tiny pots of your favorite small herbs.
