How Does Your Garden Grow?

We are finally experiencing a bit of spring in the sunny south....still another cold day this week mentioned on Weather Channel! And then....it just gets hot!!! So, I thought that I would go ahead and try to beat the heat by starting on my herb garden! This is sooo easy to do my friends (especially if I can do it!).  This will be a dish garden---so that all these fun plants don't go crazy and take over my beds! I have it on the deck to make it quite easy to get to.

My big question for y'all is do you cook with herbs? I really want to research this and see how to spice up my cooking a bit instead of just always using salt and pepper. I went to a nearby nursery yesterday, and the owner was going on and on about an herb that I have never used--lemon thyme. Do any of you use it? Do you have a fabulous recipe to share? I would LOVE to hear what all you do with these.

 First, find a fun bowl and a saucer....mine came from Old Time Pottery for $1.99!! I was so excited! Then use some good potting soil--not the cheap stuff!

 I chose four different herbs for this size pot. I have rosemary, chives, cilantro, and lemon thyme.

I love the color of this one....just hope I'll like the taste of it too!

Then, I just start adding the plants. Squish them together and add the extra potting soil.

Seriously, please share your recipes and links to recipes that you might have using fresh herbs.  That would be great! Hope y'all have a wonderful day!!
