herbal update #6

I’m like under a spell. Can’t help but cooking delicious food with home grown herbs.

Lots of good ingredients turn into…

thursdaydinner… something yummy like this: chicken filled with mozzarella cheese and chili pesto; tomato salad with red onions and garlic; and oven baked potatoes. And not to forget: lots of basil!

I’m as proud as can be! My herbs have actually been surviving for three weeks now =) And they’re greener than ever!

another herbal update

Anyone with a dark apartment and the wish to grow herbs in it, let me tell you: freezer bags are the best ever!

The only thing keeping me worried is thyme. Every single time I tried growing it, it would come out as the very first and die just as quickly. It’s barely holding up this time but with a daily portion of love and a nice talk every now and then its chances of survival are still there.

And in case you’re wondering, it’s basil that grows like crazy.

herbal update

So far it seems to work – my plants are growing. I guess the idea with the freezer bags wasn’t too bad =)

 I’m starting to dream of pasta meat sauce with the fine taste of basil, a summer drink decorated with lemon balm and a green salad topped with parsley and chives.

Mmmh yummy :-)
