Having Thyme to Herb Garden!

That same night they are to eat the meat roasted over the fire, along with bitter herbs, and bread made without yeast.
     I chuckle to myself over this scripture as I wonder what oh what were the bitter herbs they used on their meat?  Herbs are one of the easiest things to grow in the garden.  I think back over 30 years ago and can remember it was what I re-cut my teeth on.  Growing herbs in containers.  You see growing up in the Midwest during the 60’s and 70’s we always had large vegetable gardens.  However as an adult I moved away from a place where I could have a plot of earth to plant a garden but after my young years of adulthood decided that I could have a garden of sorts, one of container gardening.  It was then that I planted sweet basil, chives, thyme, oregano and rosemary.  Not a bitter one in the bunch I’m afraid! And to my delight certain ones came up year after year like the chives and the rosemary.  So to this day even though I have a plot of earth to call my own with flower and vegetable garden galore, I still plant my herbs in pots amongst the pretty lavender
and catmint.
Catmint you say?  Yes, yes even catmint.  Having 2 beautiful cats (Abbey and Pumpkin) that like to laze in the garden with me, this is an herb they love to roll around in.  For more on this you can check out my other blog life amongst cats.  
Whatever herb you decide to grow whether savory, sweet or bitter.  To use for your favorite meat dish or salad.  Give herb container gardening a try and enjoy your thyme to herb garden!
