Decorating is endless.
Cooking never ends.
Gardens are always changing.
And best of all shopping goes on and on!

Hence the name,
Open Ended!

Indoor Herb Garden!

Since I have been trying to cook healthier meals, I have needed to buy more and more fresh herbs.
Fresh herbs make any meal taste so much better.

The problem is I only use a small amount and then end up throwing the rest out.
So...I decided to grow my own. I researched it on the internet.
Then I went shopping!

I found these great herb boxes at my favorite store - Home Goods!

I also picked up four clay pots and saucers.

As you can see the boxes have a plastic liner.
Which is great for me as I have a tendency to over water or forget to water at all.
Gardening is not my gift. But I love a great looking garden.
So I keep trying.

Then I went to a local greenhouse and bought the herbs I use most.
From my research I learned that it is best to buy your herbs already started.
And as I said, growing something from seed
is way to much for my very un-green thumb.......

so I bought the plants.

I think they look great!
Now let's see if I can keep them alive. Ugh!

As you can see from the above photo, there is a lot of snow out the window.
But my new herb garden makes me think of spring!!
