These is nothing like having herbs growing in the garden, is there?
We are lucky in this area pretty much anything will grow if you choose the right spot.
I was making Spaghetti Bolognese (Dad loves it) the other night and that afternoon, before it started raining again I hopped outside to the herb garden and picked bunches of Sweet Basil, Thyme and Oregano to put in the sauce. It’s incredible the difference fresh herbs make to any recipe.
If you don’t have a herb garden, that’s OK, just make sure you try to buy locally grown where possible.
