Parsley, sage, rosemary and thyme

We were having a salad for our main meal today and I made a self crusting quiche to include in our menu.

Herbs are an essential ingredient of this particular dish and it was nice to be able to go to the garden to find some.

The rosemary is in full bloom.  At this time of year there is plenty of tender green growth and worth spending time to snip the newest of growth.

Our sage bush has thrived since we brought it with us from our previous home.

Tender young leaves of sage are also a welcome addition to the herb selection.

Ah, thyme, one of my favourite herbs.

Like the rosemary, it is full of fresh new growth and worth picking over for the freshest tips.

I love the aroma that is released as the thyme is cut.

The parsley is a bit sparse on the ground at the moment but enough there to include in the mix.

We are so fortunate to be able to have our own fresh herbs on hand to include in our cooking.

Needless to say the quiche was delicious.

Herbs are really worth growing if you have the space. The prices they want for them in the shops is horrendous!
