How long will you be relying on store-bought herbs, although you are well aware of the fact that there might be an addition of chemicals and pesticides or the products will not remain fresh till the time you use them for cooking? And even if you have a garden in your backyard, are you not tired yet of running out to snap some parsley or rosemary? Well, why not go for a herb garden placed vertically on the wall of your kitchen!
Having a herb wall just a few steps within your cooking space will give you the chance to harvest the produce at its peak, and bring the most fresh and nourishing dishes at the table. To start a herb wall, there are two basic things you need to consider.
The First Step: It is always better to start small. Once you get a hang of things, you will have a better sense of the optimal size you need to fulfill your culinary interests. Products from EcoWalls are one of the most reliable ones. You get to select your plant pallet, preferred frames, site fabrications, and the lighting options. The soil-less growing media of the EcoWalls also makes it a better option.
The Plants: Then, start with the herbs which you need regularly and enjoy cooking with. You can later add the others into the garden. Rosemary, basil, sage, parsley, oregano, spearmint, dill, bay leaf, tarragon, thyme, coriander, sweet marjoram, plantain, and many other popular herbs can be easily grown on the herb wall.
Having placed a herb wall in my kitchen already, I know exactly how it feels! Firstly I must point out that somehow, my mood just lightens up every time I step inside the kitchen nowadays. It now has a strange aesthetic beauty which I never before felt in my house. And not to mention the rich aroma of the growing saplings which captivates me and pulls me towards it. Cooking is now fun and exciting; and I have grown a habit to add fresh herbs into the dishes at every opportunity I get. Not to mention that the dishes taste better than they ever tasted before!
