New Herbs added to my window garden April 8, 2012

Posted 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:

Lemon Thyme

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.

It’s delicious.

And now with fresh oregano it’ll get even better. And the taragon, I love taragon on chicken and on fish.

oregano is a weed viz. it takes over – be mindful of it.

Yes I know. It’ll stay in a smallish pot. And I do use enough oregano in dishes so I’ll keep it trimmed back.

And the lemon thyme plant is quite the bush right now. So I don’t feel guilty about occasionally harvesting a sprig.
