Easy Herbs to Grow In Your Backyard (+ simple uses for each)

A few of my favourite things: the smell of pine, Bernese Mountain Dogs, tea dates and my herb garden. Fortunately, 'tis the season for backyard growing and I want to share with you the must have herbs that I grow in my backyard (and a few recipes that I use for each one):

1. Mint

2. Basil

3. Lemon-Thyme

I randomly came across this herb last year at a garden centre.

  • The best for adding to water.
  • Also great to give a kick to veggies, fish & chicken

4. Chives

I literally add chives to everything… Breakfast, lunch and dinner, there’s always room for chives…

  • Eggs
  • Salads
  • Veggies
  • Chicken
  • Beef

5. Rosemary

(thanks for the reminder, Jennifer!)

  • The best on sweet potatoes
  • Roasted veggies
  • Chicken
  • Eggs (it's true!)
