After I got married, I bought a couple of house plants and wanted to see if I could handle it. Both plants are alive and well along with two of the three herbs my mom gave me (the basil and garlic dill made it - the oregano did not). I enjoyed using my own herbs in my cooking so I thought I'd try something else - how about a tomato plant?? With the husbands help watering, my tomato plants have grown almost 5 times the size they were when I got them and they are COVERED with tomatoes.
Yesterday, I picked my first ripe tomato and made a caprese salad for dinner! I used my own basil and my own tomato and it was delicious!! Now I am waiting for all the other tomatoes to turn red so I can make even more yummy dishes for the Hubs and me. Over the weekend, I bought more herbs and I cannot wait to start experimenting!
I'm thinking about growing my vegetables in pots because of the limited yard space that isn't intruded by golfers or our dogs. Have you ever grown a potted garden? Do you have any advice? What are your favorite herbs to cook with?
