We would like to start growing some of our own herbs for two reasons: to save money and because our kids want to have a garden.
We tried to grow tomatoes one year and were not very successful! We have never tried to grow anything else, so we are definite beginners.
We have 1/3 acre, which receives mostly sun. The soil seems pretty moist. We have a 4-foot chain link fence around most of our yard. We live in a densely populated suburb, but we do happen to have about 800 feet of woods behind our house, which means lots of animals. Tons of rabbits, moles, mice, chipmunks, a woodchuck, deer and even a fox.
We thought it might be easiest to grow the herbs in pots so we could move them around the yard as needed or even bring them inside the house.
Also, we want everything to be organic.
So - what type of container do we use? What herbs are the easiest to grow? Where do we buy the seeds? Can we just buy a regular bag of organic soil? Any and all advice is appreciated! I really hope we can do this successfully.
