Chris Burrous: Everyone’s a farmer when it comes to their own backyard; try these tips on doing it Home Grown. Kristine Hanson: Most of us think of herbs as spices that come in bottles, cans, or fresh packages from the grocery store. But these all come from plants that are versatile and easy to grow in your own yard. So, stop paying the big bucks for these little clippings and buy some plants that will not only spice up your food, but your landscaping too! You don’t need to grow herbs in just a pot or a container in your backyard. Consider growing plants and herbs and trees in your landscaping. Well where do you start? I would start with a tree. We all need trees in our landscaping and this is a perfect one. This is a native California Bay Laurel. It grows wild everywhere so you know it loves our California climate. It’s evergreen, it’s going to grow large and it’s drought resistant. Plus, it’s got this great evergreen look, and it’s got leaves that you can use dried in your cooking all year long. Next I would suggest planting some rosemary. No garden should be without a rosemary bush. Not only is it a favorite in the kitchen, but it’s a fabulous landscape plant. This is an upright rosemary, it gets bright blue flowers in the Spring. And as you can see it’s going to grow tall so you can use it in the back of the garden, as a screen, along a fence line or in front of a building. You can buy different sizes and place those in front of your trees. There are also prostrates or low growing varieties of rosemary that will grow down a hillside or along walkways. These two are edible and can be used in the kitchen all year long. Then there’s thyme and this is my very favorite herb in the kitchen, I use it for salad dressings, but it’s also my favorite landscape plant. It’s a mounding, airy evergreen plant. I love this lemon-lime or variegated type of color for the landscaping. This will mound up and can be used as a ground cover. You can even take some of these and place them in rock outcroppings; they’re going to cascade down the rocks. And any time you need some you can pinch off a little bit of this and use it in the kitchen all season long. Lavender is another great herb that’s great in the landscape. Look at it here, it’s a shrubby edging plant, it’s got a grey green element, lends itself well to your garden and it has decorative uses, aromatherapy uses and can be used in your kitchen too. Summer cooking and basil- yummy! The perfect combination. Cuttings you get at the farmers market won’t last you all season long, but a plant will. They’re annuals, they come in green or purple, you just need to mix them into the garden. And keep them pinched, so you have bright green leaves all summer long until the very first winter frost. If you don’t have a garden, certainly a container is a good alternative. As you can see here it’s got a little bit of everything that will last you most of the year. It’s got rosemary, thyme, chives and annual basil. And I’ve just given you a few suggestions of herbs that you can put in your garden, there’s still marjoram, oregano, mint- but use your imagination. The idea is that you don’t have to have a herb garden- just a garden for your herbs.
