    Dh is looking at doing a freestanding herb garden for me this weekend it becomes reality
    I rent so i have all my herbs in pots and in these bags you can get from bunnings. You plant hebs in the top and in side pockets located around it.
    Another option is using those plastic shoe holders with the pockets in them. I think you can actually buy a herb specific one from bunnings for about $5. You can just hang it over a fence or railing and fill each pocket with soil and plant your herbs.

    As for spag bol, i only ever use lentils or tvp- no meat here.
    For the sauce i use garlic, onion, tinned tomatoes, tomato paste, oregano, rosemary, mixed herbs and sometimes others.

    I don't know measurements, because it's generally just done to taste, but I use crushed tomatoes, tomato sauce, bbq sauce, garlic, mixed herbs, salt and pepper.

    It's usually a tin of crushed tomato, then a good dollop of tomato sauce, a good drizzle of bbq sauce and a couple of tea spoons of garlic, then everything else I just add a little bit at a time until I'm happy with the taste...

    Fry finely chopped onion and bacon, add crushed garlic, add beef mince and fry until brown.
    Put in a couple of tablespoons of tomato paste and cook it off. Throw in a glug of balsalmic vinegar and then a large bottle of passata. Simmer away for ages. I sometimes add very finely grated zucchini and carrot which I've squeezed all the moisture out of.

    I'm so surprised at all the variations here. My dads italian and he would probably have a heart attack if I told him I added Worcestershire sauce, bacon, BBQ or mushrooms haha
