I planted a small potted garden this summer - three types of tomato's, basil, spicy globe basil, lemon-thyme, cilantro and jalapenos. The jalapenos, did not make it. The tops of the tomato's were snacked on by deer - but they have since left them alone. Cilantro was doing great, has taken a turn for the worst ... we shall see how they come out!
I did use my fresh home grown lemon-thyme in my homeade biscuits, making it summer A-OK!
|From the Herb Garden: Lemon Thyme - for more recipes |
I found the recipe in the July/August Food Network Magazine - click here for the real recipe. I have a serious problem following a recipe - which will actually lead to the sort of demise of my biscuits ... follow along! I was all excited when I saw this .. because for those of you who have not grown Lemon Thyme - is spreads, not just a little! So I have been looking for just about anybody who wants some and any recipe that calls for it! I saw this and was like YEAH ... so I read the recipe, which I am also not so good at doing ... yeah, doesn't call for Lemon Thyme at all. Well I fixed that!
So in the ingredients I made the following changes:
added 1 cup grated parm cheese
added a bunch of lemon thyme herbs
couple shakes regular thyme & rosemary
couple shakes of garlic powder
It calls for wheat germ - not gonna lie, that scares the hell out of me, did not use it
It calls for buttermilk, would have done this if I had it .. used regular
Calls for grated lemon zest - skipped it since I grew my lemon into my Thyme :)
