Another few newbies are Thai basil and herb fennel. They both have the same subtle licorice essence, but they are very different herbs. The basil is a key ingredient inThai cuisine. Use it fresh in lettuce wraps or spring rolls (yum). Both of these dishes are from natural born cook Heather Hands. Most any ingredient in your share can be substituted into each of these recipes.

That is also why we enjoy a job that is dictated by Nature instead of technology. Even when the fields, once again are too wet to work in, there is plenty to keep us occupied, like building the Fair Share Farm shade structure (say that fast a couple times). The farm crew did their usual great job of getting the greenhouse ready for seeding the fall transplants and drying herbs. Spring summer and fall all converge on us this time of year.
