Before I announce the winner… (link to contest post) I want to explain why it has taken me so long. I do have an excuse… (other than… I stink at making up my mind). I had planted the winner a while back and the plant died… (wonder if that was some kind of OMEN??) I replanted and waited for it to look well… like it would live.
Here is the winner:
LEMON THYME (Kimberly – My Frugal Farmstead)!!!!
Lemon Thyme looks like English Thyme and grows like English Thyme but that is where the similarity stops. Lemon Thyme definitely smells like lemon and tastes like lemon. It can be used in any recipe calling for lemon juice, lemon zest or lemon flavoring.
Congratulations to Kimberly… She has had a spell of bad news…i.e… Leaky Barn roof and “Dorothy miscarrying her calf”… I hope this puts a little bit of hope back into her bleak life…(maybe exaggerating a little there)… Here is a a picture and she is welcome to post it on her blog letting everyone see her mighty accomplishment. (again… might be over doing it a little).
You can see it is clearly marked with the blog’s name… (Left off Kimberly so my wife would not have to explain why I labelled a square after some lady from the internet… and “My frugal Farmstead” sounds like the place I bought it from…). I also gave this plant a friend… you can see in the upper right. Have no idea what this plant is… other than it was called a “Curry Plant”…
THANKS to all who participated.
