No, not like that!! I have a fantastic potted herb garden growing just outside my kitchen door. It is flourishing. This means that I need to quickly learn how to use the herbs I am growing because they are taking over!! Can someone please tell me what to do with: hot and spicy basil basil lemon balm cilantro Those are the herbs going crazy right now. I love cilantro and use it a lot so I think I'm good there. I just need to go out and cut some of it and use it. But basil and lemon balm... well, I just don't know what to do with it! Pretty soon I'll be asking about rosemary and thyme, too. But right now, those are overshadowed by the basil, balm, and cilantro so I really need to do some herbalicious cooking to clear a path for the rosemary and thyme to grow more!! Also- is there anything I have to make sure I don't do with herbs? And not just the cooking with them aspect- I mean in terms of how I cut them. Is flowering bad or good? How far down the stalk do I cut? Anyone have a go-to website that helps with this? I've never had my own herb garden before!
