Waiting to plant

IMG_4992.JPG

Peppermint and basil – waiting to be planted. I picked these up about a week ago and kept them in the house while it was still cold.  They are now outside and I’m going to plant them this week in pots.  I’ve found that the more delicate herbs seem to fair better in the summer heat in a pot where they retain moisture. It also enables me to move them around if needed.

Now the confession:  I’ve already been plucking the basil leaves for culinary purposes. It really is my go-to herb for cooking and just for a little aromatherapy. Herbs are one of nature’s best gifts!
