Here is a fun and inexpensive way to grow herbs.
My kids love planting things, unfortunately for them, they have a mom with a brown thumb. But we try anyway.
We used: clean cans (from canned vegetables), soil, herb seed, scrapbook paper, glue and craft sticks.
We are going to grow basil, thyme, parsley and rosemary.
Glue on the paper to the can and make plant sticks to identify the herbs.
