- for a brief herbal interlude. In honor of the fabulous sunshine today.I have many many baby basils (5 different varieties) coming up. As well as dill, caraway, meadowsweet and lady's mantle (and various squashes and cucumbers).
This is the Cuban oregano that I've been raving about. Looks like a succulent. Incredibly aromatic (although a bit more reminiscent of fruity sage rather than anything like oregano).
I stopped by the garden center for copper tape (slug deterrent for the raised beds), but got seduced by the lush, green lovelies in the herb section: stevia, germander, salad burnett, pineapple and tangerine sage, coconut and Attar of Roses scented geraniums and more lemon thyme. Also a couple new to me: agastache and epazote. Both are labled as culinary, and smell yummy - I'll have to do some research on them (my favorite kind of research! :-)
