I hope you all are using herbs and spices to keep your food interesting. I have planted in my perennial beds a few variety of thyme, mint, rosemary, and chives. The deer love most of my plants but not my herbs! I am hoping to get some basil planted soon, but it is still too cold.
These are just a few easy ones to grow that I use quite a bit.
In my pantry I always return to my dried basil, freshly ground pepper, paprika, cayenne, nutmeg, sage, old fashioned Lawry's seasoned salt, oregano and cumin. I have a lot more spices, but it seems like these are the ones I use the most.
Don't even get me started on garlic. I know, it's not an herb or a spice, but it is one of our favorites in almost everything!!!
Don't be afraid to try something new. You never know, you might like it!!
