I can use herbs is pretty much any dish! Basil in a tomato salad, thyme is a slow cooked tomato sauce with tilapia and chives on… well pretty much anything!
For this reason, I moved my favourite herbs into containers and right onto my porch. Now when I want to add some fresh taste to a recipe, I just walk out my front porch with some scissors and take what I need!
For the perennial herbs, just cut them back in the fall and plant back in the garden! You can also move the pots to a place out of freezing cold and wind and cover the plants with straw or leaves for the winter!
