My New Herb Garden

Please meet my new friends: Basil, Cilantro, Mint and Italian Parsley. I drove to an organic flower shop today (for you Dallas-ites, Redentas on Skillman is wonderful.) Now I have my very own herb garden in a flower box. It's right next to the kitchen, and I'm in heaven. I already cut up tomatoes and put a few mint leaves on top.


  1. Oh you will love having those fresh herbs! I see some nice summer dishes coming out of your kitchen - can't wait! The trick with Basil is to pick it often (every few days once it gets established). It will grow quickly and give you a lot more leaves if you harvest often.
