Herbs I am obsessed with fresh herbs. I buy them all the time at Trader Joe’s, then use only one-quarter of them for cooking, leaving the rest to rot in the refrigerator. I’m also drawn to the idea of having a herb garden. I envision myself on my knees on a Saturday morning, picking fresh rosemary to roast with vegetables that night for dinner. I have never had a garden before. Now that I think about it, the only time I remember planting anything in the earth was in 3rd grade when we had a class project to plant sunflowers.
But this week, I am going to plant a mini herb garden in my new backyard. Yes, my fiancé and I just bought our first house. The backyard contains two orange trees, a lemon tree and a young tangerine tree. It honestly blows my mind that I can walk into the backyard, pick fruit off a tree and eat it. It must be my suburban upbringing that makes me so surprised that I can grow fruits, veggies and herbs in my yard . . . and have it be self-sustaining. Wish me luck on starting my organic herb paradise. Now I just need to find tons of recipes that call for a variety of herbs.
