Anytime is a Good THYME for a Herb Garden

After spending money on fresh herbs and using dried, ground herbs, I decided to invest in a herb garden.
Fresh herbs can be fairly expensive and can range from $2-$3 a pack.  Dried and ground herbs do not have the essential herb oils and flavor fresh herbs have.

I decided to start my own herb garden!

Here's what I planted:

Some of my herbs
Here are a list of dishes and recipes we've made so far:
-Herb Baked Chicken
-Cilantro Lime Vinaigrette
-Honey Mint Whiskey Smash Cocktail

Price Breakdown:
-Planter: $6
-Soil: $2
-Herb Plants: $4 each ($20 total)

TOTAL: $28 (savings of at least $10-$30 depending on how often you use your herbs)
