I bought two small herb plants today (oregano, and sage). It cost less than buying the twigs in the produce section, so I figured I would give it a try. If it goes well, I will buy some more herb plants later.
When I made the lemon pork with cumin recently, it called for fresh sage and I thought I had some on hand, but I didn't. So, I started thinking...maybe if I grow my own little plant, then I will have it when I need it.
Sounds reasonable in theory, but I don't have a green thumb. Most plants consider themselves sentenced to death row if they come to my house. I have improved over the last few years though...a couple plants have actually survived my care.
So it is with great hope that I will tend to my fresh little herb plants. Wish them luck!
