Re: Any Herb-Lovers Here?

"Aspire to inspire before you expire"

I grew rosemary last year, and will probably get some this year, too.  It isn't my favorite herb, but it may grow on me if I use it more!  I LOVE dill, but it is so tall and gangly it is kind of hard to grow in a pot (unless you stake it a little).  My MIL has a big patch of dill next to her rhubarb that reseeds itself every year.  I just LOVE the smell when  you accidentally rub up against it.

Back in HS, I did have a pineapple geranium for awhile and the leaves smelled just like the fruit.  It got very big but didn't come back the next year (and I thought it was supposed to be a perennial).  I love mint but learned my lesson with that... even after my parents mowed down my little garden, the mint came back for years and years!  And it spread quite far from the original planting.  If I ever plant it in the ground again, I will try to contain it to one spot ... I heard you can do this by planting it in a pot underground, to keep the roots from straying. 

Speaking of edible flowers, the last Taste of Home (I believe) had a recipe in it for sugaring pansies to decorate cupcakes, cakes, desserts, etc.  Very pretty!
