Spring is Coming!
Be patient, everyone, spring is coming, we promise! We can't wait to plant and grow fresh herbs to use in our dishes. Last year, the architect planted all her herbs in individual pots....this enabled her to take advantage of different sun spots in her yard throughout the day. It was quite pleasant sitting on her back patio, sipping wine, listening to music, surrounded by all those fresh aromas planted in their beautiful pots!
Herbs are typically divided into categories...savory herbs, like rosemary and sage, add flavor, other herbs, like basil, dill, thyme and tarragon, accent flavors but don't overpower dishes, while others like chive and parsley work well in blends and as garnish.
We will post more on herbs later in the growing season!
