Wooohoooo!!! I finally got my herb garden in today. Not that I had any clue what I was doing, but it’s done! Since I am going “organic” now, and need ways to spice my food up (sorry the pun!), I figured I would put a bunch of pots together in an unused area of my back porch and plant some herbs. So far I have basil, thyme, oregano, parsley, chives, lemon balm, mint, rosemary, dill, chocolate mint, and plain ol’ mint.
NOW WHAT DO I DO???
Seriously….I’ve never worked with fresh herbs before. I guess I have a lot of learning to do this summer! But it feels oh so good to take my health in my own hands, and know that I will be eating healthy. I hope to learn all about these herbs and how to make fantastic food!
I already learned tonight that I can take the bark off of our Snowball Bush, and use it in a tea. Apparently it’s good for “female problems” mainly, which I don’t really have. BUT, it’s also used to relax muscles, can be an anti-inflammatory, and a mild diuretic. Not that with Crohn’s you want diarrhea, but if you’ve read many of my other posts, you know why I might want some help!
Ah, feels good to be doing work like this!
