A Little Thyme In the Sun

Recently I planted lettuce seeds in a patio container already full with Thyme, now the lettuce is growing {can’t wait to taste that first salad} so decided it was time to cut back the overgrown Thyme and dry half of it for cooking and use the other half for my candle collection.

My mint has been struggling in its pot so I also cut that back and might have to whip up some Mojitos!

Even if you aren’t able to grow outside in your area yet, window sills make the perfect mini gardens. Both Thyme and Mint are pretty forgiving and a good place to start.

    I love the idea of the scent of thyme wafting through an open window from a window box on a sunny day.

      It was lovely. I have managed to put all the dried to use in salts and recipes already! “Thyme” for a new batch.

      Thyme is great fresh and dried. I just also made a Thyme salt for cooking with. That would be great on the porkloin too!
