The perfect way to grow your herbs and spices

The perfect way to grow your herbs and spices if you don’t have a garden. This corner of my balcony is packed with mint, oregano, lemon balm, strawberries, parsley, thyme, an Aloe and some Drosera to combat gnats and other flying pests.
I grew all of them except the Aloe and strawberries from seeds last spring and they are absolutely thriving out there!
Last night I harvested most of the mint to stop them from overgrowing everything. It’s great in pesto with a bit of parsley, however odd that sounds.
