We went to Trader Joe's the first Saturday it was open in our city. I don't normally buy herbs crowded in pots that are too small for them, but the herbs in the pot in the middle of the photo looked good, and they found their way into the shopping cart. The rosemary, thyme, and oregano joined a couple rosemary plants that I've managed to keep alive for several years.
On the top shelf, is one that looks dead every spring, but comes back to life. This may be its last winter, though. It didn't green up this summer as much as it normally does.
I thought the bay plant I've had a few years had died this spring, but new growth came from the base of the plant, and I cut back the dead stems.
I haven't been using as much self control with the food at holiday gatherings, but am managing to not gain much weight. I made a big pot of vegetable soup, and put some of my new herbs in it. This soup is low fat, low calories, so I can enjoy some of those treats. I just have to be careful.
Happy holidays! I'm a Christian, and am very thankful for the gift of faith in Jesus.
