Fresh Herbs are the best

23 May

It’s hard to go back to store bought herbs once you begin growing your own. We have started our own herb garden here on Siesta Key — with fresh mint and basil leading the charge. We’ll be using the mint for iced tea, Mojitos, and Indian dishes. The basil will be saved for my homemade pizza and my nearly world-famous pasta bake. The mint started slowly, but really took off after the recent rains. The basil is doing great, but requires a lot of H20. 

That’s the mint on the bottom — can’t you smell it???
