I realize I’m a little late to the game in getting my herbs started, but better late than never! The usual gang have all taken root: rosemary, basil, flat-leaf parsley, mint, lemon thyme (probably my favorite herb EVER), oregano… and the newcomer, weighing in at a whopping 10 oz., lavender mint!
Once these contenders move up in weight class and I can actually snip off a portion for cooking without resulting in a knockout, it’s on! Whether adding sprinklings of mint to a seasonal fruit salad, or scattering goat cheese and lemon thyme over a free-range poached egg, herbs never stop being wonderful flavor contributors to any dish.
So stay tuned….
