Fresh Herbs from the garden

One thing about the summer approaching that I look forward to is planting some herbs and flowers. There is nothing like fresh herbs to give your food a wholesome flavor to it.. In the winter I have to rely on store bought but I love going to my garden and picking my own freshly grown herbs.. I also like to plant some flowers as well. In the pictures below you will see everything I planted except the tomato plant. That is in a container as well. The tomato plant is called "patio" container plant and hopefully cherry tomato's will grow. Last year was the first time I planted a tomato plant in a container. Only two grew because I learned the container was too small. This year I bought a nice size pot so we will see what happens.

Thyme and Oregano



Parsley, Chives and dill



Dahlia's



Petunia's



Mint and Basil



Thank you for coming to my blog. Please come back again soon.

What gorgeous photos and plants! Will be great to add to upcoming dishes I'm sure. Fresh basil is probably my fav.

Hey Gemma - the herbs and flowers look wonderful! I'm attempting to grow sweet basil in my apartment with some silly kit I bought eons ago. So far I have tiny little basil plants popping up! My Mom is growing basil, tomatoes and lettuce on the ROOF!! I'm going to bring her some pepper plants too. LOL! Pepper says meow! ;-)

Thank you Geraldine and Ali. Geraldine, Basil is my favorite as well. I love the smell of fresh basil. :) It is great when I am cooking to be able to get fresh herbs for cooking. And Ali, let me know how your moms plants grow. I would have never guessed you could grow lettuce on the roof. And good luck with your basil. Sounds like they are starting to grow. I have some tomato's already starting to grow.
