Urban Jungle Bloggers: Kitchen Greens & Fresh Herbal Tea

Fresh herbs for herbal tea - Urban Jungle Bloggers kitchen greens

I rotate my plants from time to time, sometimes placing them on the kitchen worktop to catch some sun. Although, up until now, none of them have been permanent residents.

However, when I saw this month’s topic for Urban Jungle Bloggers – Kitchen Greens – it occurred to me that yes, the kitchen is the ideal place to display plants. Especially edible ones.

In addition to adding some green decoration helping to make your home feel more biophilic, you also get to enjoy your home grown produce. What could be lovelier than growing fresh herbs in your kitchen to enhance your dishes?


Urban Jungle Bloggers: Green Balcony With Herbs

herbs and plants on the balcony

It’s time for another Urban Jungle Bloggers post and I’m very happy to be joining once again. This month’s theme is: ‘Show your green balcony or window sill’.

We have a little balcony with a few different plants and herbs growing in pots on it.

I particularly love growing herbs because as well as making attractive plants, they also have so many other uses. Some can be added to your cooking or chopped raw into salads. While the leaves from others can be infused to make delicious herbal teas. And of course, they have such beautiful aromas.

It’s lovely to sit out on the balcony when the weather is warm. Especially on sultry summer evenings to read or do some writing. Up until this year, though, I never really had a nice place to sit. We just used plastic chairs.

Then one day in late autumn Samuel Ansbacher came home with a surprise – a belated wedding anniversary gift. It was a bench for the balcony!
