Day 10 of mymonthontheplot is herbs! I love herbs and have them popping up all over the plot so it’s hard to get one pic so I made a collage! These are just some of my favourites! Oregano, lemon thyme, sage, mint, chives, rosemary, St Johns wort, lemon balm. All of these have so many uses and can be stored for use later. I love making a mixed herb pesto with the softer herbs (including basil which I have growing on my windowsill) and adding in a few nasturtium leaves. They give it a peppery kick similar to rocket. I dry the sage, rosemary and thyme for use through the winter. Mint freezes well and can be added to smoothies straight from the freezer, just pick the leaves off the stalks and store in a bag. I’ll be making some chive vinegar at the weekend with the chive flowers, works great in salad dressings.
