Lemon Grass & Lemon Balm Seeds Planted

Lemon Grass - an essential herb
for Asian cuisine, the leaves and stems
can be used fresh or dried to impart a
distinct lemon flavor.  It also makes a
wonderful ingredient for hot teas.

Lemon Balm's most popular use is in
soothing herbal teas, where its
 lemon-scented  volatile oils are released.
The dried leaves are also a perfect
 ingredient for  potpourri and dream pillows.

Today is the day to plant my new herb seeds.  First the peppermint then the Lemon Grass and Lemon Balm.  I'm really excited about these as I love the look of grasses in the garden and can't wait to taste their lively lemon flavor in my tea. The seeds were purchased from Park Seed Company.
