An Herb Garden in a Single Pot
I love to cook with fresh herbs, but I hate the expense and waste of buying those little packages of herbs and only using a sprig or two. For about the same cost as a package of herbs at the supermarket, you can buy a 3″ or 4″ herb plant that will last for months. I like to plant herbs in a strawberry pot because it takes up very little space and provides an entire herb garden in a single pot!
Strawberry pots have a dozen or so openings, each one just the right size for an herb. With just a little sun and water, you can clip fresh herbs for months!

This is one of my favorite recipes for entertaining which uses a variety of fresh herbs:
Fresh Herb Dip
1 cup sour cream
1/2 cup mayonnaise
1 tablespoon chopped parsley
1 tablespoon chopped dill
1 tablespoon chopped chives
1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
a 1-inch square of bleu cheese, crumbled
salt and pepper to taste
Mix all ingredients together in a bowl. Chill for 1/2 hour or longer to allow flavors to blend. Serve with fresh veggies or chips. Also delicious as a topping on baked potatoes.
