My herbs have been growing like weeds this summer. We had a few very wet weeks, followed by lots of sunshine, and I find myself wondering what to do with so much oregano and basil! Really, I’ve never seen basil leaves this large before:
I fully expected the oregano to spread out (because that’s what it did last year), but this plant is officially larger than last year’s and the summer is only halfway over:
The chives are doing well, too (despite oregano’s best efforts to crowd them out of the pot). I used them in the tomato and cucumber salad I fixed with ribs this weekend, and they added yummy flavor.
So…anybody in need of fresh herbs?
