Cooking with fresh herbs is a delight and having them on hand is even more delightful. I needed somewhere to put a basil plant I had just purchased at the grocery store, so I quickly put it in a Mason Jar I had on hand. I fully intended for this to be a temporary solution and planned on transplanting it later. But if flourished! It grew so quickly, that I decided to rescue a few of the herbs in my backyard that my dog kept pulling up and I started a Mason Jar garden for my windowsill. Incredibly, each one has grew rapidly (the cilantro grew more than 2 inches in a week!). Fresh, convenient and beautiful!
