PICKING HERBS IN THE POTAGER

Last evening I went out to pick herbs from the potager. I love my newly named vegetable garden and the herbs that are growing so well now that cooler temperature are here. I suppose now that I have given the garden a little French flair I should call them 'erbs, but the fact is herbs they are and herbs they will always be. Sorry Julia!


I picked chives, parsley, thyme and oregano to but in the polenta we were having for dinner. Along with parmesan cheese it just dresses up the flavor.
To cook without herbs... Well it doesn't bear thinking about.

  1. There are lots of things I covet about your garden, and this is definitely one of them. I would love a 'potager'! That's one thing that seems to be impossible on this block of land. Your harvest of herbs look terrific and I bet the polenta dish was superb.

  2. A potager garden benefits from diversity. Companion planting of edibles, ornamentals and herbs is a rewarding method of gardening

  3. One of the best benefits of growing your own herbs is having fresh herbs right at your fingertips, whenever you want or need them. When you have your own herb garden growing right outside – or inside – your door, you will always have the right ingredients waiting for you to make dinner time magic

  5. I agree, cooking without herbs doesn't bear thinking about. I love being able to pop outside my door and grab a little parsley or rosemary for flavoring my dishes.
