Salad Burnet, Sanguisorba minor, another evergreen herb. This herb isn't one I cook with, not in the heat kind of cooking. I use this cucumber flavored herb in salads and in my homemade Tzatziki, a cucumber yogurt dish. This herb adds that extra cucumber boost. Nice addition to anyone's herb garden.
Thyme is something we all need....both in our food and in our lives. For now my Thyme is in a small clay pot on the deck. All my herbs are on the deck in containers. I have dogs, enough said. I will find a larger container for some of the herbs in the spring.
One herb that doesn't handle the cold weather at all.....Basil. Sweet Basil is a warm season annual. I leave my Basil in the herb pot until it is no longer. The Goldfinches LOVE to eat the seeds of the Basil. I like being able to have things for the birds to eat. See how sad these poor little spent blooms look?
Have no fear---I harvested a few seeds to grow some Basil indoors over the winter.
