  • Fill the mason jars almost to the top with soil, leaving enough room to add just enough additional soil to lightly cover the seeds.

  • Add seeds to each jar following planting instructions on the seed packet. (Or just sprinkle some in each jar like I did.)

  • Cover lightly with more soil. You don’t want to plant them too deep because they need the sun (and water) to germinate. Add just enough water to each jar to wet the soil and the seeds. I used a condiment-style squeeze bottle to control the water flow so I didn’t dislodge the seeds.

  • Affix some sort of tag to your jars to aid in identifying them as they sprout.

  • These have been growing for about three weeks! Coming along quite nicely don’t you think? I haven’t actually used any in cooking yet, but just as soon as they’re a little farther along, herb butter is at the top of the list!

  • Now when I have a recipe that calls for fresh herbs, my “supply” is a short walk to my window sill. :-)
