Since we are back and forth all summer, we never get to plant a real garden. This year, I decided that I wanted to at least try some herbs, so in early April I bought top soil, organic seeds and colorful pots and planted our favorites. We have cilantro, basil, parsley (this is the little gray pot, which I obviously didn't grow from a seed), sweet red pepper seedlings and tomatoes (which have already been sent to my mom's for transplant). So far, the basil has yielded enough for two small batches of pesto and seasoning for other dishes. We've also used the parsley and cilantro for a few things. It's so nice to just pick and cook, instead of running to the store and hoping for something fresh. Next year, I think I'll branch out.. hopefully to some bigger pots and more veggies. For this year, I'm content with my mini-garden to go!
What are your favorite fresh herbs to plant? What have you had the most luck growing? Least luck? Good luck to all the other gardeners out there!
