And Greek oregano, purple sage...
Hi everyone! Are you all gardening right now?
This year I am hoping to overcome my squeamishness about eating things that grow in my deck...and I am planting an herb garden.
Mostly because I want fresh tarragon for sauces and vinegars and dill for my homemade dill pickles....
I made this gift basket for a friend who grows lovely herbs on her deck, she is my inspiration!
I bought three unusual herbs at the fancy garden store, herbs she won't find at the farmers market.
A fun gift? Maybe even...Father's Day, if dad is a gardener? You could use a small wooden crate from the craft store or a large Italian plum tomato tin? I'm sure Rita at BHL would make a Neptune's Garden spoon! Or like my friend's basket, a welcome birthday gift, or hostess gift.... If your budget is an issue, skip the silver spoons and use chopsticks or wooden skewers with little glued on paper flags.
The plan is to enjoy sweet summer herbs, right outside your back door!
