Herb garden

Just about every dish tastes better with fresh herbs – and there’s no better way to get fresh herbs than to grow them yourself. According to The Concise Oxford Dictionary, ‘a herb is any plant where the leaves, seeds or flowers are used for medicine, flavor or scent.’ This is the reason why this  spring I decided to grow an herb garden near the main gate. As you can see in the pictures, I started with a not as nice corner of the propriety, but with the help of some garden gloves, dirt and back work, I managed to get ready for planting eight big plastic pots. I was pleasantly surprised to see that after only 3 days my watercress seedlings were showing off their gentle green faces to the sun, and now, I’m eager for the basil, tarragon, cilantro and  thyme to do the same. Luckily, the garden sage and the lemon thyme from last year have survived the winter so I have less to plant. I can’t wait to harvest the basil for some nice pesto, my favorite pasta sauce, or for the dill so tasty in salads and dips, or cilantro, my all time favorite herb, which it seems I never get enough of it. But until then, I just have to wait patiently. I’ll keep you posted with my herbs adventure.
