After the holidays, Jim and I came home to some very dead herb plants on our balcony – Two weeks without water in the Florida sun obviously did not serve them well.

Last week, we finally had some time off together and replenished our potted garden with basil, cilantro, parsley and mint.  We still need to wait a bit for the herbs to grow before we can harvest them to cook with, but our patience will be worth it.

Do you have an herb garden?  What do you grow?



    • You should definitely give it a try! We use herbs all the time when we cook, so potting and growing our own was definitely the way to go – It’s cost effective over time and I think they just plain taste better!

  1. We grow rosemary, thyme, and oregano. This is my, er, fifth rosemary in two years, but is nearing in on its first birthday in March!

    Now that I’ve conquered rosemary, I’m hoping to get the thyme a bit bigger. In the summer we grow basil in the garden, and this year I’m hoping mint in a pot too. I really want to grow Thai basil since it’s so expensive in the stores, but knowing my luck the squirrels will eat it all.
