While a city kitchen may not boast the space required for full fledged kitchen garden, there is no reason why you should not be able to fit into what little space is available, a small indoor herb garden that lends a lovely green sparkle to the area and is also a source of some handy seasonings.
You need to pick a site and direction which gets some of the sun’s rays daily, a window sill or an appropriate kitchen platform can be used.
Herbs don’t grow very big or very tall and do not require too much space or even large pots. Small pots would do so that you can fit them into a convenient nook that gets sunlight.
Sage, Sweet Marjoram, Basil, Parsley, Rosemary, Thyme, Chives are just some of the possibilities for a compact kitchen herb garden.
A kitchen herb garden will have several benefits: it will cheer up your kitchen with the small green oasis that is a visual treat. Also some herbs can be used medicinally for common problems like sore throats etc.
And with this compact little herb garden, the next time you are whipping up a culinary masterpiece, you need look no further than your window sill.
