That's a great and informative site! Thank you, Ross!

 

I grow a lot of my own savory herbs. It's great fun, saves money and they taste so much better fresh! Hubby is the main cook and it has been like pulling teeth to get him to use the fresh herbs instead of his dried, store bought stock, but he's learning! It's my garden so he won't pick them himself. That's part of the problem. I think I'm going to make him his own herb garden near the kitchen next year.

 

I love growing my own herbs!

Maybe you could plant one there next year, even just in large pots? I might do potted on the deck, just outside the door.

That's what I am planning ...with some planted in the ground a little farther away. I grow my chives in pots already. I would like a good basil...haven't had much luck with that.

I've had good luck with growing basil in a sunny window during the summer (the biggest challenge is keeping a basil-loving cat out of it), but I started some herb seeds recently in peat pots and they aren't doing much.  I suspect I'm going to have to get a grow light to get them to grow indoors in the winter.

Miss Judy, I've got chives growing.  They are young, haven't had any blooms yet.  What all do you use your chives for?

Chives on baked potato with sour cream of course. In cream cheese for a cracker spread. Garlic chives and butter to saute` shrimp. Taragon and butter for topping salmon before broiling. Rosemary for any red meat soup or stew also for foccasia, sage for sausage and foccasia.. Parsley on buttered new potatoes.

I always use chives mixed in with tuna, chicken or egg salad for sandwiches. Or in any kind of salad! Or in veg. soup. Or mixed with butter and shredded cheese to top a baked potato.

Remember, if it rains on your picnic it's also raining on your garden!

I like to grab a hand full of assorted fresh herbs and put them in a roasting chicken. Sometimes I add a few slices of lemon or lime with the herbs. Delicately flavors the meat and scents the house.

happy-flowerDown the steps from our back porch I have 2 huge planters filled with herbs, you dont need a lot of room to "grow your own". An old medal wash tub makes an excellent herb garden.

 I have a lot more than I use, but I do  enjoy growing them.

chives with tuna, egg and chicken salad sounds yummy!  I'm going to give it a try.  Thank you.

I like a mixture of chopped chives, parsley and tarragon in rice or couscous. I also like chives in scrambled eggs or mixed with cream cheese, a little mayo and chicken for a "hot pocket" type sandwich.

I (sorta) have a farm in Africa.

My herbs didn't do any good this year. Since I like to dry them for winter I found a solution. At my local Kroger store they sale fresh organic herbs and they are often marked down to 99 cents. I've been buying them and drying them, so far I have oregano, tarragon, and sage.
