I know this garden update all about herbs may cause herb envy for some readers who are apartment dwellers or just not gardeners. Other people may wonder what’s the big deal about cooking with fresh herbs. I can hardly remember now when I first started growing herbs and cooking with them, but now I eagerly look forward to summer when I can go outside and get herbs to use in the kitchen. If you’re not currently using fresh herbs in your cooking, check some of the recipe links for each herb type to see how I use my own herbs, and maybe I can inspire you to grow a few pots of something in a windowsill if you don’t have a garden space!
No recipes yet for chervil, but thanks to a gift of seeds from Vanessa from She Craves, I’m growing some this year, and she assures me I’m going to love it. If you have recipe ideas for chervil, I’d love to hear about them.
I also have this lovely golden oregano plant hanging out on the edge of the garden with my flowers, but since I have so much Greek oregano, this one doesn’t get clipped nearly as much. The flavor is very similar though, so if you’d like some color with your oregano, go for this one.
I’d actually find it quite impossible to pick my very favorite herb from all my many favorites (unless it was cilantro, which doesn’t grow well at all in Utah, where the summers get so hot and I have to buy my cilantro from the store!) If you do have a favorite herb, I’d love hear in the comments about which one it is and how you most enjoy using it!
