Here we are, all the way into the August of another year. The garden is exploding.
I think that a vegetable garden shouldn’t just be functional…it should be pretty to look at. So come see how my garden grows…and shows.
And, yes, I’m here to suggest you put that salt grinder down.
Herbs. I love.
Here’s my case for the herbal sense of taste: Herbs add just the right tang of green to food. They may be sublime ingredients, but they’re not shy or retiring. They’re free-spirited and supernal, divinely edible and summer-sweet healthy.
It’s August 29, so let’s all celebrate MoreHerbs, Less Salt Day. Call it a passion-raising plug for a finer solution.
Just a little rosemary, thyme, or oregano will enrich a dish as much as a heavy dose of salt.
My favorite herb is basil. It’s besiegingly lovely. Beyond utterance. This year, I’ve got a bull-moose bumper crop of Biblical measure.
Gardening with herbs, which is becoming increasingly popular, is indulged in by those who like subtlety in their plants in preference to brilliance.

When you make dinner tonight, instead of adding salt, use a few herbs. Get the skinny here on Twitter.
Whatever you eat, it’s best when herbs are involved.
Summa cum yummy. I guarantee it.
