New Herbs added to my window garden April 8, 2012Posted by truthspew in Uncategorized.
So as you might already know, I am already growing Basil, Spearmint, and Lemon Thyme on a southern facing window sill.
We were at Trader Joe’s this weekend and they had a bunch of herb plants. I picked up Oregano, and Taragon.
So fresh herbs in our household will now include:
I need to build a stacking system because I want to grow chives and dill too.
Nothing beats fresh herbs. For example, the basil:
Take 1/4 or 1/3 of a french loaf. Split the loave across it’s middle and drizzle some olive oil on the cut sides. You can also drizzle a little bit of good balsamic vinegar on the bread too.
Thinly cut a slicing tomato. Season it with salt, pepper, garlic powder and dry oregano. Plae on bread and add thinly sliced mozzarella. Top the cheese with a little more balsamic vinegar and a chiffonade of basil.
And now with fresh oregano it’ll get even better. And the taragon, I love taragon on chicken and on fish.
