I snipped off plenty of the Oregano that lends itself to be tied up with a pretty ribbon and hang up to dry for later use in stews.
I also got plenty of Sweet Basil that is so good with corn and tomatoes. The basil had paled a little because of being out in the strong morning sun. I plan to let it lay on the kitchen towel and dry.
In addition, I cut the parsley that as far as I am concerned is a cool weather plant. I use it often for decorating food that is otherwise bland and I use it in stir fried foods.
Finally, I am leaving out the herbs in a cup of water to be used as I go along doing my cooking from breakfast though dinner. Oh, I forgot to tell you that I also got a few sprigs of Rosemary for my memory.
I must say that the few herbs that I do have is nothing to brag about but it makes me happy to have them and they have to do fine for a garden this summer. Ah, a handful of the herbs smell so fresh and so delightful. They will go a long way in the summer kitchen.
Thank you for visiting my blog and I hope that you have a wonderful summer.
