There is nothing like a good snow storm to bring harvest of garden fresh tomatoes to a screeching halt, but a few garden herbs stand tall against the first snow fall.
I took the opportunity to play in the snow and snap a few photos of my favorite garden herbs for snowy gardens. Here they are, drum-roll please….
- Sage – Savory sage butter sauce over pasta – Yummmy!
- Oregano – Fresh oregano on pizza, over grilled fish, or chopped-up and mixed into olive oil served with crispy French bread. You are welcome; I just helped you plan dinner for Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday night!
- Rosemary – Chopped and baked into fresh bread or dinner rolls or baked into fresh scones. Now you know what to make for Saturday morning breakfast too!
Anyway you chop it, herbs are awesome and these three rock stars can be enjoyed well into the winter months. Bring a little spice into your life and plant an herb garden; your taste buds will be glad you did!
P.S. Herbs grow great in container gardens too, here is a great factsheet for a listing of herbs that grow well in Utah and are suitable for container gardens – Bon Appetite!
