Fresh herbs are such a wonderful and flavorful staple in a Paleo diet, and I’ve been trying (and failing) to grow my own from for at least the past six months. Recently, I decided to switch from cilantro and basil over to heartier herbs (here in the Southwest anyways): mint and rosemary.
Then while I was at the Home Depot today getting some other “normal” Home Depot supplies, I suddenly remembered that they have a whole great big greenhouse section. With pre-grown plants and herbs!
So I picked up a rosemary plant and a chocolate mint plant (what? chocolate mint! I know, right?) for $3.88 each. The pots were only about $2 each. And apparently if I kill the plants, I can actually get my money back for them so long as I keep the receipt. Isn’t that the craziest thing you’ve ever heard? I’m not planning on killing them though. I’ll let you know how it goes. 🙂
Someday, I will have my own fabulous medium sized vegetable garden with raised beds and fresh peppers and tomatoes and squash. But first thing’s first: keep the rosemary and chocolate mint alive.
