Grow your own
Why spend money for a whole bunch of rosemary or mint when a recipe only calls for a tablespoon? Grow your own herbs and you can cut off just what you need. Depending on your green thumb, you can start with the seeds (the cheaper option) or seedlings. Herbs need as much light as possible, so put your pots near an east- or west-facing window and remember that herbs also need to drain well. If you’re cutting often, you’ll want to make sure you use an organic fertilizer to keep the leaves growing.
