Mason Jar Herb Garden

Sharing is caring!

Create this easy Mason Jar Herb Garden for your window. It's the perfect container garden for herb lovers - especially if you are short on space in your yard.I think it is safe to say that I do not know what I would do without my fresh herbs. Cooking with fresh herbs is my “thang” – especially basil, parsley, rosemary and cilantro. I am lucky to have a large herb garden that keeps providing me with its bounty well into the fall. I am also lucky to have enough space in my yard to have an herb garden. It is so convenient to walk outside with a pair of scissors and snip off some fresh herbs for whatever recipe I need them for.
