My Top 10 List: Herbs

By Trish

No garden should be without culinary herbs, as they are a part of nearly everyone's diet and yet so easy to grow. This article explores my current list of top 10 herbs that every gardener needs to grow, as well as many of their uses.

Very nice article Trish. I grow parsley, oregano right now. I have grown dill, basil and chives. I keep re arranging my garden beds and I am hoping to get a herb bed going with the ones I use the most.
Of all of the herbs I hate mustard in any form but my husband likes it. Fortunately it grows wild here thanks to his mom planting it for mustard greens so I don't have to include it in my garden bed.

Thanks for the information on drying garlic to make garlic powder. I use it in small amounts in my spice mixes and hate buying a whole jar of it when I don't use that much of it.

None of us eat mustard greens, although we will take them to market.

I put together meat and cheese trays for the master gardeners this spring (Dave is the president this year), and used the mustard greens as decoration of the trays. One of the gals snagged one and rolled up the meat in it and popped it in her mouth. I think everyone in our family gasped! LOL! We sometimes took one leaf and chopped it up real fine to add to salads, otherwise it is too spicy for us. But I do love prepared mustard!

I don't like prepared mustard, ground mustard or mustard seeds in spice mixes. Trust me, I tried several different mixes trying to figure out which ingredient was making me say yuck. I like to have different mixes on hand for meat.

I don't use sage much but in a turkey patties in gravy recipe I came up with I discovered that was the star ingredient to making them taste so good.

A little sage certainly goes a long way! I agree
