Every year I plant a small garden right outside my kitchen door. I try to plant a few of the herbs, vegetables, and flowers I use the most in this garden. I love to step outside the door and clip a few herbs, grab a tomato, or cut some flowers to throw them in a vase.
What do I include?
Flowers that work well in an arrangement, snapdragons, mums, irises, you get the idea.
Herbs I like to cook with, thyme, chives, oregano, Mint (Chocolate mint is my favorite), tarragon, basil, and rosemary
Vegetables I like to grab for a quick summer meal, such as tomatoes, peppers, or onions.
This way I am more likely to run out and grab something quick while I am cooking
