Here is part of my lunch today....
The best part about this is I had all of it at home. An even better part? The basil wasn't slimy and lacking freshness...
This is all it took (plus a little salt and pepper)...
As I've mentioned a few times, I enjoying growing herbs. Well, I don't really do much. I don't think they last near as long buying them from the store and they cost so much more there as well.
Honestly, I'm not a planter. I have no desire to plant anything. I don't know if it is because I thinking I'm doing it wrong, or what. Luckily, my mom enjoys this. Each season, she pretty much comes over and does some flowers, plants and herbs for me.
Right now, I have parsley, mint, basil, cilantro & rosemary. The other plant it is a hanging basket we need to hang.
I've not purchased a planter/pot in years. I should probably do that and pick up some pretty, more matching ones. Maybe at the end of the season when they are on sale.
I'm not all too great about watering things either. We've had lots of rain the past few days, so that has helped a great deal....especially considering I've been bed bound and not allowed to lift pitchers of water.
What I would really like to do is plant a garden to grow these things....
I know, my fruit cravings may be a bit much. haha. Unfortunately, we have a TON of bunnies around here. Elton chases them every day. They hide under our deck. I think think a garden with these items would last unless planted much higher up. You definitely get a better deal on fruit at Sam's so a lot of what we get comes from there. We also have some local markets close by that we like.
I get sick of seeing plastic in the fridge and having to open lids. Since Brent's been dieting and eating fresh and healthy, our fridge is empty enough to fit these in :) I just open the refrigerator door and have a buffet, haha.
Don't let me fool you, my other craving this week is dipping oreos in milk. I'm not even a milk person. One of the twins must be.
Do you have a garden? Herbs? Any times to fruits or veggies in a garden?
