What Herbs To Plant?

Basil – For pasta sauce, pesto, in home pickled foods.
Dill – For sauces and in home pickled foods.
Cilantro – I use this all the time for Indian dishes and in Tomatillo Salsa and Tomato Salsa.
Catnip – Just a little for Sophie. She's really funny on kitty krack.
Mint – Great in teas and adult beverages. (Must be planted in it's own container or it will take over.)
Parsley – For salads, salsas.

I love your blog and the information you have here. This year will be my third year with my garden. The first year was great, and the second not so great. This year I ordered all heirloom seeds and am anxiously awaiting their shipment. I am getting nervous as I feel the seeds should already be in the dirt doing their magic so that I can transplant them when the time comes. I look forward to tagging along on your journey.

Rosemary is probably my favourite. As a perennial it is easy to look after too. Once your plant is established it pretty much looks after itself.

I would love a herb garden Cilantro is my favorite. I planted it a few years ago and it's been coming back in various spots ever since. However, this year when it came back I managed to kill it!
