This post is following the example of Nicole Merrifield, who posted a while back about her herb garden. Check out her post. It is definitely a good idea to consider because home grown herbs are an inexpensive way to make low-protein food more interesting.
Here it is! I am very excited about this. On the left is yellow pear tomatoes, then there is English thyme infront of my flower, and then my favorites: basil and cilantro in the tin basket.
Ideas for cooking:
Basil is of course good with anything Italian – pasta with marinera sauce or sauteed with fresh veggies (such as tomatoes!). But it also goes well in Thai dishes.
Cilantro is great with low-protein pasta salad, in Mexican food (low-protein mexi-rice), Asian food (stir fry, curry, etc.)
What do you cook with herbs?
This was a pretty low-cost project:
The herbs cost $1.50 each
I got the tin basket at a thrift store, and the green square pot at the dollar store
Walmart has 4 lb bags of potting soil for 98 cents.
