Thoughts of spring and summer trigger mouthwatering daydreams of cooking with fresh herbs harvested from right outside your door. Herbs are one of the easiest crops to grow and they can be incorporated in most recipes. Freshen up chicken recipes with tarragon and basil; soak some herbs in olive oil to make a gorgeous dip for fresh bread, a base for homemade pizza, or to drizzle on fresh pasta; and highlight dill’s unique flavor by baking it into bread or snipping it in to salads. With such a variety of herbs, you can grow and try new ones each year until you settle on your favorites. Don’t let summer pass you by without tasting all it has to offer.
