Kitchen Herbs


Herbs have finally been planted on our little back porch off the kitchen. Thyme, sage, oregano, and rosemary... along with a few other treats. I like having these so accessable for cooking and keeping them in planters makes it easy to shuffle inside when we have a frost so they last well into the fall.

Little S has certainly inherited my love of getting dirty, he was in heaven helping us out and throwing around soil all afternoon. We're both lucky that Big Smith likes to clean up or else we'd just be happy wallow in mud pies forever.

Watering the plants each day has been a fun (and very wet) chore, and now we get to cook up some yummy herb-filled dishes. Hello summer!

  2. Wonderful! Yay for herbs! I have found we eat so much more green stuff when it is right outside our door (or in your case, window)! Enjoy!

  5. Huzzah for patio herbs! And I love that he's wearing just a tshirt and a diaper. That's the cutest outfit for very tiny people. I also see that he's rocking that amber necklace.

  7. Awesome! Every time I need basil or rosemary I think about how I really just need to plant our own little herb garden - this is inspiring!
