Planting Herbs

This summer I planted an herb garden with the help of a friend.  She hooked me up with various plants and got me started.  So my front porch now looks like a small garden filled with dill, basil, oregano, lavender, cilantro, mint and chives! 

I loved having fresh herbs for my summer cooking- the dill and cilantro are my favorites!  I am even learning how to dry the herbs to use for dip mixes and soups. 

To make my thank you card, I used an old favorite stamp set, called Sweet Herbs.  I did some water coloring on it and was very happy with the outcome. 

I can't wait until next year to expand my garden and try more new plants!

What kind of herbs do you like to grow and what is your favorite way to use them?
