Fresh Herbs from the Garden
With a mild and early spring things in the garden are doing great, especially the herbs. While picking herbs for an omelet this morning I decided to pick a wee bit of almost everything. Two exceptions were the lavender and the basil, neither of which is quite ready for harvesting. Here's the list starting from the left.....
Blooming garden sage, Kentucky Colonel spearmint, parsley (with chervil lying on top of its stems), French thyme, tarragon, peppermint, rosemary, oregano, lemon thyme, variegated sage, chives, and a little sprig of dill lying across the bottom of the chives.
The herb omelet this morning had finely chopped chives, chervil and tarragon tucked inside just before the omelet was folded. A great taste of spring.
