I did something so incredibly weird and out of the norm for me that I think my need to nurture is basically running amok and challenging my brain.
I bought some starter herb plants and made an herb “garden”.
It’s not really a garden, I just have basil, oregano, parsley, and chives that are in pots on a table on the deck.
Seriously, it’s nothing really. But oh my, is it everything.
For those of you who know me well, you know that I kill plants. Usually very, very quickly. I usually tell people NOT to get me flowers because I can’t keep them alive long enough.
So, why an herb garden?? Well here’s the thing, I love to cook. I like fresh herbs. You put two and two together and it just seems like a good thing to start doing.
There’s nothing better than making Chicken Piccata and adding some FRESHLY CUT FROM YOUR GARDEN Italian Parsley to the butter sauce. I mean, it’s just amazing. And the smell…oh my lord.
If you are wanting to up your cooking game, seriously look into starting a small herb garden. We did need to buy the pots, potting soil, and the plants (which came out to $100 or so) but it was such a great investment. I definitely plan on adding some great food posts onto the blog featuring herbs from my herb garden!!
