Herbs are so lovely. :)  Mine have come back in abundance this spring, and I have just harvested the first crop of everything except lavender and chives.  My lavender is getting ready to bloom, which will be exciting. :)


Harvested oregano, lemon balm, thyme, and rosemary.


Lemon Balm


Japanese Basil

This is all drying in my kitchen now. :)  I am hoping to preserve a LOT over the spring so that I can sell dried herbs at the farmers market this summer.  I might sell fresh herbs, too.  Fun!

Have a lovely day!

I love herbs too. I have cilantro, sage, oregano, mint, and rosemary that have come back for the third year. It's really fun for the baby to pick and smell the different herbs. Yours look really lovely. What do you do with marjoram?

I keep trying to grow cilantro, but with no luck! One of my sisters grows it beautifully, though. :) I actually don't know what I am going to use the marjoram for--it's a new herb for me! When I figure that out, I'll have to do a post about it!
