Originally published on 3/8/14: Since I have to eat a low sodium diet for health reasons, I now cook with a lot more herbs for flavor. Turns out that limitation has turned me into a much better cook in general, and I make and enjoy healthier scratch meals since most everything processed is too high in sodium. I'm excited to try more new recipes this year with fresh garden stuff. Today we planted: Rosemary - 9 + 4 (meaning 9 plants for us and 4 to give away as Pampered Chef door prizes since the Pampered Chef is selling gardening tools now). Thyme 6 + 4 Lavender 9 + 0 (all for me!) Chives 0 (we have this perennial in our garden already) + 4 Cilantro 6 + 4 Parsley 6 + 4 Basil 6 + 4 Basil Crimson King 6 (all for me) Basil Mrs. Burns' Lemon 6 (all for me) Girl #1 is holding her 'Garden Journal'. What a gal.
