We had a little bit nicer weather this week and so I figured I might be safe to plant the herbs that I bought a couple weeks ago. If we have another hard frost I guess I’ll just place buckets over them…
I’ve enjoyed herbs for awhile, probably for as long as I’ve loved sheep, and have had an herb garden with basic culinary herbs and a few others like lemon balm and lavender as well. I hardly ever cook without adding one or two of them to a dish. My favorite is Rosemary, which pairs very nicely with roasted potatoes and lamb 🙂
There are so many different uses for herbs, I’m pretty sure the possibilities are endless. One of these days I would like to try my hand at making tinctures and poultices.
Here is a new one I added to my repertoire, sorrel.
“Makes real nourishing soup.” Name that movie 🙂
Do you have any suggestions of uses for herbs?
