Have you ever made herb butter? For some reason I never did until a few months ago when my herb pots were in full swing. It's so easy and delicious!
You just gather a handful of various herbs and finely chop. I used Rosemary, thyme, and oregano. ( I also made honey butter)
Mix the herbs into slightly soft butter. Then roll the butter into a log or ball, wrap in parchment, and chill in the fridge. Enjoy on fresh bread rolls etc.
I got this cute gardening book at a Japanese bookstore a while ago. I can't read it at all of course but I think it's about how to grow micogreens at home in whatever containers you can find? Luckily there are pretty much step by step pictures. It's inspired me to plant some fall crops of chard and radishes to harvest as shoots. So far so good!
I picked up this beautiful little book at the Portland Japanese Garden's Urban Bonsai exhibit last month. Both my boyfriend and the cashier at the gift shop made fun of me for buying a book I can't actually read, but really, You don't need to be able to read it to enjoy the beautiful photos and design. I love the step by step photos and watching the tiny landscapes come together.
