My little herb garden is coming along nicely. It's a first year for most of the herbs and second for a few of them. This is the dill. I am letting it go to seed so I will get more next year. I am growing for home made pickles.
This young lavender is for drying and tucking away into drawers and closets or possibly a hot bath to relax the muscles.
I am so happy with the basil. It is the first herb plant I have grow from seed and it's getting bigger than the plants I bought at the farmers market. I even planted it late.
Thyme has always been one of my favorite herbs to pick and rub in my hands for a fragrant treat. I have two varieties including lemon thyme.
Spearmint is to dry for winter teas to wake me up in the winter mornings.
I also have sage for Thanksgiving stuffing, oregano to add to a good tomato sauce, peppermint to mix with the spearmint and some chives too.
It has been a joy to be able to walk out the back door and pick some fresh organic herbs while cooking. Next year I want it to be twice or maybe even three times as big with many more herbs added.
Do you have an herb garden?
