    Herb Garden

    Next summer I'm going to try to grow an herb garden so I will have fresh herbs to cook with. One of my favorite things to make is fresh bruschetta! It's best with only the freshest ingredients, including the basil. Also, I make fresh pesto too. Sooo good!

    Overabundance Of Basil

    I posted this on the Pasta forum, and cross-posting it here... I have a huge vase filled with fresh basil. I pruned back a plant that was sprouting flowers, and I know it will be a matter of time before the leaves turn yellow and fall off - so off it goes! I think I will be...

    I Feel "Herbie"

    I have an herb garden embraced with a brick border. I love it so. Every Spring, I look forward to seeing those tiny tips of green poking through the soil, waiting for more sunshine to enhance their growth. I adore the little toads that take residence here...

    Of all the herbs, I find basil to be the most useful. I never run out of a pot of basil growing outside in the front yard. They're so easy to grow, and propagate, so it will seem strange to wake up to a day totally without basil plants! As long as I keep on harvesting them, I...

    I Miss My Herb Garden

    When I lived in California I had the most beautiful herb garden.  Huge rosemary bush, basil growing like weeds, lemon chives, garlic chives, old sage bush, marjoram, Calendula, etc....  I would pick fresh herbs almost year round.  I also had the best skin because I...

    They can enhance and compliment any dish.

    Plus, nature's self sufficient and any ailment can be eased with the right combination of natural supplements - just a case of finding the right one.

    I went to the library once and looked at a book that explained the different herbs and spices that are most popular and suggested applications for them. Herbs are a really nice way to enhance the flavor of any dish.

    My Dad quite likes his gardening

    and planted a mini herb garden outside the kitchen. Its so nice to be able to just pop out and snip off a few herbs here and there to add to your dish. The freshness of the ingredients really make the flavours pop.
