I love putting in new herbs each spring – although I confess that they end up being a lot more ornamental than actually being used in my kitchen 🙂 I do get a lot of use out of the basil, and sometimes the cilantro and parsley, but the rest often go forgotten. So, my goal this year is to use more fresh herbs in my cooking.
That said, there’s nothing wrong with herbs for ornamental purposes. The chives (above) are so beautiful when they bloom! And there’s nothing quite like the bright, fresh green and smell of mint leaves (below).
I’m reusing my wine boxes as herb boxes – I think I can get one more year out of them before they fall apart.
And, after thoroughly washing out the mason jars and putting in new drainage rock and potting soil, I’m giving the mason jar herbs another try, as well.Pin It
