You guys you guys guess what! I was finally able to use some of my home-grown herbs in a recipe that I made! The growing process has taken so much longer than I thought it would and frankly I'm not sure if the chives or rosemary will ever grow but the basil and the thyme are going strong! Look!
This is tomato tortellini soup and that little green basil leaf you see is the result of a lot of plant love and attention. The recipe for the soup is here, and trust me, it's delicious. Here's hoping I'll be able to share more herb-based success stories in the near future!
