Herb Container Workshop
Last night I taught a group of folks about herbs and growing them indoors in containers. During lunch, I sketched the containers we would use as they appeared lined up on one of the tables. They're glazed ceramic, 8" across and about 14" deep -- really nice ... in muted shades of gold, blue and pink.
We had a ball -- though another late evening. We filled these pretties with basil, chives, rosemary, scented geraniums, thyme, sage, cilantro, and more -- all grown by my students.
We tasted some things I cooked using the herbs they'd be growing -- rosemary teabread, rosemaray spiced nuts, chocolate chip mint cookies, chocolate mint and fruit clusters, herbal teas, a nice cheese and herb mix, etc.
