Pardner's Pantry

Tried & True Ingredients and Recipies You can Count on!

Fresh Herbs are an essential commodity and maintaining a well stocked supply is as easy as growing them in your own back-yard. Your local Nursery can get you started by ordering plants that are virtually ready to harvest or you can start from scratch, seeds or seedlings. Just don’t delay for as my Favorite Homesteader put it ….


“Opportunity is a wary visitor, she knocks ever so lightly,

 tarries but a moment, and is Gone!" 

(from Homesteader Frank Felt's Songs of the Sespe, 1933)


Depending on your climate it might be best to grow some varieties indoors as they make a pleasant addition while greening up the old homestead. 


Fresh Herbs from the back yard: Basil. oregano, thyme, rosemary, tarragon, sage, parsley, cilantro, etc. A list of most all culinary herbs from Wikipedia follows.
