You’d be hard pressed to find someone in New York who hasn’t given in to the farm-to-table craze. Green markets are bigger than ever and restaurants throughout the country are striving to use fresh and local ingredients as much as possible. But just because the trend has hit the restaurant scene, it doesn’t mean you can’t take it to the next level in your kitchen at home. And that’s not just buying organic veggies from the local farmer’s market.
Take your freshly picked herbs into your own hands by growing them right on your own windowsill. This “Garden in the Koop” Herb Garden Kit provides you with all of the tools necessary for growing your own fresh herbs this spring. And it’s so much easier than you’d think. Just add water to the starting mix, deposit it into the six-egg carton, then add your seeds. It comes with six seed packets, including Genovese basil, chives, flat-leaf parsley, oregano, thyme and sweet marjoram, and they even throw in six wood plant markers so you can keep track of what’s growing where. When it’s ready to be picked, use your homegrown herbs to season seafood, chicken, salad or whatever else you’re cooking up this season.
