At the end of the summer it is so rewarding to have a big harvest full of veggies, but after that it is hard to grow food over the winter, especially in Portland were it rains all year round. Yup, I just looked out the window and it started raining .
Herbs are the answer! They are easy to grow and can be done inside so you still have something to fresh to snip off. I usually put mine in the kitchen so I can easily grab some and throw it in a pan. Herbs can be fun, delicious and they can add to your decor when placed in a herb box.
I chose to purchase a box that was already stained a darker color, but you could use a lighter box and stain it yourself.
