Just waiting...

I love growing herbs. They are an easy way to add a lot of flavor to a dish in no time. I always include room for thyme, dill, rosemary, chives and lovage in the garden. However, basil is one of my favorites. This year, I started bush basil plants from Pinetree Garden Seeds for my garden and to give away. The plants will be lovely, delicious and just waiting to be picked as they sit in a pot by the front door of our house. I can wait to toss basil, rosemary and salt with tomatoes fresh from the garden!

The basil plants pictured here are just waiting for warmer weather before they head outside.

We also have our basil and rosemary in big pots by the front door of our house. It comes in handy when your cooking or making pizza to grab the herbs quickly.

I usually start basil in the greenhouse, but am sooo behind this year. I will probably still start some, as it grows fast. I have always wanted to have a big mixed herb container near the door...maybe next year. That is the gardener's motto, right?

Thanks for visiting!
