Herbs for the Holidays

Herbs are a necessity for decorating, cooking and gift giving.
Here are some ideas for Thanksgiving and Christmas.

Create an Italian Herb Pot for that hard to buy for person on your list.
This heavy pot is filled with 3 large Swiss Chard plants,
thyme, and violas. You could add: parsley, rosemary, chives,
oregano, and nasturtiums...

Cut bunches of Rosemary, fill vases in your kitchen window,
it will root! Mix Rosemary with other herbs and add to your
floral designs for Thanksgiving/Christmas.

Herb Wreath
Incorporate herbs into a small kitchen wreath like this one.

Camellia, magnolia, holly berries, choke berries make the base
of this wreath. Rosemary and bay are the dominant herbs here, but
you could add Artemesia(wormwood), lavender, thyme, oregano,
just about any herb in your garden will do!


Take advantage of whatever you have growing.

Use rosemary, oregano, sage, thyme, parsley, and chives for stuffing
under the skin of your bird/chicken. The kitchen aroma is divine.

Herb Biscuits
Buy a frozen package of biscuit dough, let thaw(be careful, it grows!)
pull small pieces out to roll in olive oil, chopped herbs and parmesean
cheese. Bake at 400 for about 15 minutes...

Blessings from the Garden
