Last weekend , I bought two herb plants...Rosemary and Italian Parsley for a whopping RM16 from a nursery nearby. I am deliriously joyful for they are growing nicely in the garden and now I don't have to run out to the supermarket just to get these fresh herbs. I can just go to the garden and pluck them :p Surprisingly , despite the hot weather they are growing well. I can't imagine what it would be like living without them. These herbs are essential in all my cooking and I can't live without them. Being able to grow them myself is an added bonus indeed! I will be adding more .... I have ordered thymes , oregano and dill plants from the nursery and I am keeping my fingers crossed that I will get them soon.
Rosemary is a woody perennial herb with fragrant and is a heat loving herb. So it is not a problem growing them here. There are lots of goodness in them, besides its medical properties like , it has amazing anti oxidant properties in them too. It is ornamental, it's fragrant and it's delicious. Both the leaves and the flowers are edible. Its Latin name, Rosmarinus officinalis, means "dew of the sea" and rosemary is most closely associated with the cooking of the Mediterranean area. It is a welcome culinary seasoning. I use them in my roasts, cookies and foccacia and pasta :)) So tell me , isn't this good news that I can grow these herbs in my very own garden? :))
