Parsley, Sage, Rosemary and Thyme

















Except that there's no parsley, instead there is basil, dill, and oregano. But Basil, Sage, Rosemary, Thyme, Dill and Oregano doesn't a catchy tune make.

This is the corner of the garden reserved for herbs and spices. And despite the fact that the picture makes it look like there is a lot of empty dirt, it is actually going pretty well. We started all of them from seed, except for the rosemary. None of my rosemary seeds germinated, so I just bought a little plant from Lowe's. We've already gotten quite a bit of use out of the basil, rosemary, and sage. Anyone for some homegrown basil on a homegrown tomato with fresh mozzerella? Mmmmm...... And tonight we are going to use a bunch of the delicious smelling fresh dill in some tzaziki sauce. The little white pot in the middle of the dirt is the oregano. So far it has been a magnificently slow grower, so we're letting it get a bit bigger before digging in. Every time I smell it it reminds me of pizza.

In the other corner of the herb box I put a bunch of Zinnia seeds, and wah-lah! They turned into Zinnia's!
