Dear Family & friends
Many of the perennial plants in the garden has now slowed down and others completely abandoned all their leaves to go to hibernation mode. The priveledges of having fresh herbs from the garden straight to the kitchen table comes to some limitation these days.
|There's all sorts of herbs grown in just this little area|
Although not as abundant as it was in the warmer season, we still manage to harvest a bit of our usual favorites like parsley and coriander, as well as chives to sprinkle into our meals. Our family enjoys lots of herbs in our meals because it smells good and taste good too!
|mint makes a good smelling cup of tea|
In the garden, I also have several bushes of Rosemary and Sage. These particular herbs can withstand cold winters. We can harvest these herbs for our tea or soup all throughout the winter months.
|one of our most favourite herbs that we like sprinkled on our meals|
Yesterday our neighbour came knocking at our door to ask if she can have some of our 'garden tea' as she is feeling 'under the weather'. The 'garden tea' she refers to is 'sage'. My daughter of course quickly harvested a handful of sage cuttings for her. She will have lots of sage tea for the cold season and we hope it will heal her sore throat soon too.
|herbal tea holds many health benefit for our well being|
As it's our cold season, it's always good to drink lots of herbal tea and nutricious soup to cheer and comfort ourselves.
Hope you are keeping yourselves healthy and happy too.
