know that I am not an out~of~doors person.
So~o~o. . .
as suggested by a close friend and colleague,
to begin my out~of~doors journey
I began gardening. . .Herb Gardening.
"Mr. Ed" built a three tier herb box
and we placed it just beyond the patio doors
in On Crooked Creek Gardens.
I adore how the three square boxes form little pockets for a variety of herbs.
While I resided in South East Kansas,
my colleague and I attended several Herb Gardening Classes.
These classes not only helped me to identify each herb,
but they also introduced me to using herbs within my kitchen.
Making herb butter is one of my favorite ways to use herbs!
Sharing my love of Herb Gardening with others is truly a joy.
Here's a glimpse of the Herb Gardening presentation,
Herbs - Edible Plants, I shared with my Joy Circle Ladies.
Through the Garden Gate
was a special time with special friends On Crooked Creek.
I hosted a Garden Tour, featuring our Herb Garden.
"Mr. Ed" grilled some amazing chicken which I served with
herb flavored spaghetti and pasta sauce, french bread with herb butter,
a green salad, and a lemon dessert.
several years ago, the herb box meet its demise.
"Mr. Ed" helped me make the move of the herbs
to On Crooked Creek's front gardens.
Instead of an herb box, we now use container gardening.
Early in the Summer evening,
I enjoy the play of light for photographing the blossoms of the chive.
The fifth in my post of My Favorite Things. . .Herb Gardening
has helped me achieve better health by getting out~of~doors
more frequently and eating more flavorful foods enhanced with herbs.
Take a moment to enjoy the herb gardening past and present
within On Crooked Creek's Gardens.
Until next time. . .
