30 Minute Herb Garden

Welcome to "no-excuse gardening." In just 30 short minutes you can have an herb or vegetable garden, which will be an excellent first project if you are new to gardening. If you are a seasoned gardener, using Garden Soxx is just the perfect way to start something new, without spending too much time, because you probably don't have much free time as it is.

Garden Soxx, which were originally designed for erosion control, have also become a new way to plant in small spaces, which makes them perfect for raised bed gardening. Garden Soxx are cleverly made from a synthetic fabric which is stuffed with 1 cubic foot of compost, and they will last from 3-5 years.

I am using a 4X4 raised bed, so I will need 12 Garden Soxx to fill my bed.

It's the simplest thing you'll ever do. All you'll need is your scissors for cutting the places that you will plant. Once the herbs are in, water thoroughly.  After that, all you have to do is wait and plan the tasty meals that are coming your way.

Today, I'm planting Oregano, two types Genovese Basil, Lemon Basil and Parsley in my herb garden. They're all perfect for my pesto recipes, and low maintenance.
