If you’re here, it’s because you like growing food. Whether you’re good at it or not is another matter entirely. But even for those of you who are green-thumb challenged, there are ways for you to add your own hyper-locally grown produce to your next meal. You just have to get creative with your garden … and sometimes, you have to make the most of the opportunities that come your way.
That’s why we’re stoked about Modern Sproutâ€”because we think everyone should feel the joy of growing food at home.

With some simple assembling, you’ll be growing your own herbs in no time. The kits have several types to choose from:
The company also offers multiple-jar packs, as well asÂ self-watering kits with multiple plants that you grow inside an stylish burlap sacks. Try combos like lemon basil/sage/dill and parsley/cilantro/Thai basil.
