The little tender herb seedlings soaking up the sun.
A sweet little wreath I made from Thyme…
Tie bundles of thyme onto a wire form.
Hang in your kitchen and trim sprigs when you need to flavor your dishes.
This was last years crop of Purple Basil growing beautifully in the warm greenhouse.
Basil will be just one of the many Herbs available for sale this Spring in my 4th Annual Sale.
Fresh Herbs, how I miss you during the long Winter.
Can’t wait for you to come back!
Cilantro when gone to seed becomes Coriander–
or a lot more Cilantro!
I will fill a jar for the spice cupboard and store the rest in my seed drawers for Spring planting.
The Basil continues to grow at a fast pace.
A few extra Herbs to take to the Farmer’s Market on Saturday morning.
The warmer weather this past week has helped the Basil grow.
Enjoying the first pinches for salads and sandwiches.
Sometimes I just ignore the weeds and work,
and busy myself with a little fun project.
The Thyme that creeps around the edges of the garden is thick, lush and just starting to flower.
A good time to give it a little trim.
This is beneficial for the Thyme and gives me the opportunity to make a little Herb Wreath to hang in the kitchen
I used some old wire and jute string.
Gather little bundles of Thyme and tie with a piece of jute.
Tie the bundles onto the wire and knot tightly in the back of the wreath.
Tuck each new bundle into the previous bundle and continue around the wreath.
Tuck the Thyme in tightly, when it dries it will shrink down and you do not want the wire frame to show.
You can enjoy the wreath right away, snipping fresh Thyme for cooking.
If you would like to dry it, just hang it in a dry, cool location.
Maybe the garden gate needs a little wreath.
I love when I can just snip a few fresh Herbs right from the garden.
I have been sprinkling Thyme on everything from sandwiches to roasted sweet corn.
These little ironstone butter pats are perfect for holding herbs for meal time.
