Garden in a Bag


Herbs. I love them! Especially fresh herbs. Last year was the first time I grew my own. It is so much cheaper than buying them at the store. I had cilantro and basil last year. This year I came across little brown bags called Garden in a Bag. Basically you get a little bag filled with soil and seeds. You let the plants sprout, root and grow in the bag and then move them to larger pots when needed. I just loved that I could put these on my kitchen counter and soon I will have fresh herbs. Well, hopefully I will have fresh herbs. First we will have to see if these little Garden in a Bag products actually work. This will be my little spring project.


The first step is to plant the seeds in the soil and cover the bag with plastic. You are supposed to sit the bag in a warm place out of direct sunlight. It says the plants should sprout within 7 to 10 days. We shall see. Stay tuned...

I want these! I'm going to look them up.
We have an herb garden that's wonderful, but sometimes I have bad luck planting new herbs.
It is cheaper!

I found them on Amazon.com. They have a lot of options for herbs and even some flowers too I think. I really hope they work too!
