My Modest Herb Garden


In my yard, I've grown a modest herb (and flower and berry) garden. 






 Here are the herbs my garden contains:


Lavender!



Peppermint!



Dill!


Italian Oregano!

Strawberries!


Thyme!

Rosemary!

Greek Oregano!
  I started my herb garden rather late this year because it did not feel like summer until August in Seattle. The rosemary is from my garden last year.... the only one to survive the frigid winter. I have not even used that many of my herbs. But I have used some!



Basil in a delicious bowl of tomato soup.

 
Lavender in my suitcase to make all my clothes smell nice.

Peppermint in my recently invented drink concoction.


I haven't named my drink concotion yet, but it is quite delicous and refreshing. Here is how to make it:
  • Mix brewed peach tea (when cooled) with berry sparkling water. The ratio should be 1/4 peach tea to 3/4 sparkling water.
  • Add cinnamon, about a teaspoon.
  • Add fresh peppermint leaves.
  • Enjoy this refreshing beverage! 
It sounds strange, but it really is good. 


  There is also a giant, thorny blackberry bush in my yard.
