Freshen up your cooking with beautiful homegrown herbs!

Whether you love to garden, have the space to plant or simply just love to cook with Mother Nature’s finest, there is nothing quite like fresh herbs.  This season make a pot full of fresh basil, spearmint, rosemary and chives and don’t forget fresh cilantro.  The combination of all four look gorgeous together and will give you a variety to choose from all summer long.

Fresh basil with tomatoes and cucumbers…yum.  Spearmint sprigs in your favorite iced tea make it a most refreshing afternoon beverage.  Rosemary can be added to most roasted veggies, chicken and fish dishes, and chopped chives are always great to have on hand.  Summertime guacamole is extra special with cilantro.  Not to mention, once all of these are ready to harvest, they look beautiful in a vase (instant centerpiece) adding an aromatic freshness to the air….

Try it — you’ll see just how fulfilling it can be to take ingredients from the earth and bring them directly to your table…..with a bath in the sink first of course. Enjoy!
