Today I want to talk about the very last herb in my garden. I’ve decided that this will be the last week to feature my Herb Garden, Week 8 herbs in my newsletter, although I plan to continue using them at home. This past week, I had fun making Lemon Dill Fish (see recipe above) using dill and parsley from my herb garden. Then, I made pizza on Friday night using basil and oregano from the garden. Both dishes were delicious! So, as you can probably see from this week’s picture, I’ve about picked my herbs clean! But, that’s OK because picking herbs encourages them to grow even more, so new life will continue to spring forth and I may even need to replant these herbs in bigger pots soon.
Dill (far left) is a delicious and strong herb used to season fish, bread, and other casseroles and such. It is a delicious addition to your favorite bread recipe to make an herb bread.
Herb Garden, Week 8A quick and easy herb tip. When you pick fresh herbs, place them on a small cutting board and quickly chop them with a sharp knife, holding the end of the blade steady with your left palm and chopping with your right hand (if you’re left handed, do the opposite). Continue scraping the herbs into a pile until they are all chopped up. Sprinkle them in or on your dish as seasoning or garnish.
