Herbs For Lunch

Herbs For Lunch

September 29th Tue at Noon

Noon at the Waseca Public LIbrary

I’m sharing some easy ways to use Herbs in the kitchen.

Hope to see you there!

When The Pickles Are Gone

Growing Herbs

Today I had the pleasure of speaking at our local library.

I love herbs and hopefully inspired some gardeners to start a culinary herb garden.

Little starter pots of herbs can be kept from drying out under a little overturned canning jar.



          Herbs is where my passion for gardening first started.  I fell in love with the fragrant and tasty little plants growing in the greenhouse where I worked as a floral designer.  I knew that someday I would tend an herb garden.

          I keep a defined herb bed in the kitchen garden, but you will also find herbs tucked all around the garden, among the perennials, pond and Rabbit Run Cottage.  Herbs bring bees and butterflies to the garden.  Chocolate mint and thyme edge the garden paths releasing it’s fragrance when walking through the garden.  Not to mention how much flavor herbs bring to the kitchen.  If you have not grown herbs before, consider adding them to your garden this year!

Gardening Gifts

Little herb snips make the perfect little stocking stuffer, for your garden friends!

I use these snips in my own greenhouse and garden, and a pair in the kitchen.

I restocked my little Etsy store!

Each little snip ordered will be tucked into a little linen gift bag if you mention you read it here!

Herbs For Me And To Share

When I was a child our family always had a small clump of chives growing somewhere in our garden or flower beds. I’m sure I didn’t know what an Herb was back then. I remember picking the flowers and the onion smell being left on my hands.
I don’t remember when I learned about the world of Herbs; but I knew I loved them, I wanted to grow them, I wanted to cook with them, I even dreamed of having a little Herb Garden Nursery.

While cutting these Herbs this morning, I realized that I grow Herbs, cook with Herbs, I even occasionally sell some Herb pots, best of all I share them with friends and family.

A treat to visit Rita’s beautiful home, and meet my new string loving friend, Jackie.

Herb Snips

Herb Snips

Do you have a garden tool you could not live without?
I use these little Herb snips for more than just tending the Herbs.
They are the perfect tool to deadhead the flowers.
When tying up the tomatoes or other plants on the wild side, they are handy to tuck into the top of the twine roll.
I stocked my little Etsy garden store with a few more of these little snips.
