Herbs of Provence

By Nancymccarroll
A friend sent my husband Herbs de Provence for Christmas.  It was a thoughtful gift that is a daily use as chicken dishes, eggs, and fish all benefit from a dash of this lovely mixture.  The crock contains finely ground thyme, rosemary, basil, savory and marjoram, and a small hit of lavender in the concoction. (Thank you, Dorothay!)
Herbs of ProvenceCoq au vin and this recipe with a whole chicken perched atop a beer can is one of the husband's specialties (he sometimes uses Herbs of Provence inside the chicken):

Currently in my little corner of the world we are growing:
  • mint (LOADS of it)
  • rosemary
  • chives
  • tarragon (the tag says "Texas Tarragon")
  • parsley
  • oregano
  • sage
  • cilantro
  • garlic
  • basil (hopefully the tiny seeds will provide the base for many containers of pesto)
Every time I try to grow thyme, it seems to fade in the heat.  Guess it needs a different spot.
Garden stakes with herb names imprinted on the front have faded over the years, so this is what I purchased from Amazon:

Here are some recylcled window herb garden containers that perked up with Spray Paint refashioned by Centsational Girl:

Good idea, as I have several containers that could use a good slathering of paint to give them fresh faces.
