Do you have space for a kitchen herb garden...on your bench top?
This awkward corner space in the Mia Bella kitchen is a perfect spot...
for potted thyme, oregano, parsley and chives.
With lovely bright morning sun, the pots are happy to stay in place for the entire summer.
Add a jug of hydroponic lettuces (roots intact and sitting in water)...
for fresh picked lettuce for the sandwiches.
Add a vase of pretty blooms...
Like these crisp white paper whites, with their glorious scent!
And you have a beautiful kitchen vignette.
During the winter months as it is now in New Zealand,
the growth of the plants has slowed
and the pots need a little time in the sunshine outdoors.
Southern Hemisphere temperatures mean you can pop them outside for a week,'
then bring them in again.
(I do this 2 or 3 times over the winter, especially when we have a rainy weather week.)
I've had my kitchen herb garden on the bench top for over a year now...
and I LOVE the convenience, and the look of it!
