I’ve always dreamed of simply running out to my backyard and snipping off some fresh rosemary for my roast chicken recipe. But alas, I am no gardener and my backyard rests against a natural canyon with tons of wildlife who feast on my plants. Nothing compares to the taste and ease of fresh herbs grown yourself! And that’s why I’m not giving up and still pine away to have my own herb garden. If this sounds like you, then check out some of these fun herb garden ideas!
