Monday with Dirt and Herbs

  1. Might I suggest Coriander (Coriandrum sativum) which produces seeds that lend a warm, citrusy flavor to tea. You can steep the leaves by themselves or add them to a rich black tea for additional flavoring. The best part is that you can use this herb in multiple ways. The leaves, used in cooking, are known as cilantro or Chinese parsley.


  2. My lack of knowledge and the way I feel about you can be summed up in a song by Aaron Neville and Linda Ronstadt..”I don’t know much, but I know I love you(r blog)!!!!!!! Could you be any more charming and interesting…nope, no way 🙂 Thanks for sharing 🙂

  3. I don’t know much about herbs but I still want to be involved. How about…… Fenugreek? Although you don’t put it in tea though. Its pretty easy to grow.

  4. How about Bee Balm? It’s used to make bergamot tea and (bonus!) butterflies & hummingbirds love the flowers. It will spread like mint though, but from the pictures of your beds, I think you’ve got the containment thing under control.

    1. black peeper… first read black pepper… (than saw the “peeper” and searched for “peeper” to see if there was a herb with this name)… I could not find one… so I am hoping it is just a typo… if not please let me know. Black pepper is a fabulous idea… probably the most popular herb (everyone uses pepper… well except in Argentina…) Great choice Thanks Spring!

    1. I bought a pre-built… assemble yourself gazebo… and it was packed in metal creates… we were trying to figure out how to get rid of all this big heavy metal… and then… (well)… got lazy put dirt in them… It has turned out better than I thought… the furthest one back (with the raspberries and grapes needs to be finished… I am going to wrap the outside with wood… )

    1. Thanks! that is great advice… by chance… I planted stevia… (I also saw it for the first time this year in my local garden store) I love the taste of the leaves fresh (herb salad believe it or not)… now I am not sure what to do with the plant… if it should be dried… or turned into a syrup… but it will be great for the teas…
