Breathe Deeply!

My dear friend and neighbor knocked at the door. There she stood, holding a garden hod (a cool container used to cart around a harvest) filled with fresh herbs from her garden.

 Garden Hod 

The aroma of Greek oregano, tarragon, chives, apple mint and chocolate mint filled my kitchen. Thank you, neighbor!

To keep the herbs fresh, I filled a container with a bit of water. Who knew that fresh herbs could make a lovely bouquet? Of course, my family used every bit of the herbs…we made herb tea and jazzed up our recipes with flavor.

I love the new use for the old beanpot! It must be very happy in its new home!
