Sweet basil Flat leaf parsley
Origanum / origano Lemons
Colourful dried or fresh chillies add (extra) heat to a hearty meal and parsley, coriander, sweet basil and origanum picked straight from the garden adds yummy flavour to your dishes.
Don’t forget to squeeze some fresh lemon juice over your salad or veggies.
To top it all….these edible plants are a lot of fun to use in a drawing or painting, so grab a sketchbook or canvas and get creative!:)
In the photo to the left -pardon the fuzzy quality- I drew chillies, aubergines, baby marrow flowers and olives in black pen and ink and in the photo to the right I’d stuck pretty colour cuttings from a magazine.
