Chocolate Mint and Rosemary Herbs

Fresh herbs are such a wonderful and flavorful staple in a Paleo diet, and I’ve been trying (and failing) to grow my own from for at least the past six months.  Recently, I decided to switch from cilantro and basil over to heartier herbs (here in the Southwest anyways): mint and rosemary.

Then while I was at the Home Depot today getting some other “normal” Home Depot supplies, I suddenly remembered that they have a whole great big greenhouse section.  With pre-grown plants and herbs!

Potting my Herbs

So I picked up a rosemary plant and a chocolate mint plant (what?  chocolate mint!  I know, right?) for $3.88 each.  The pots were only about $2 each.  And apparently if I kill the plants, I can actually get my money back for them so long as I keep the receipt.  Isn’t that the craziest thing you’ve ever heard?  I’m not planning on killing them though.  I’ll let you know how it goes.  🙂

Someday, I will have my own fabulous medium sized vegetable garden with raised beds and fresh peppers and tomatoes and squash.  But first thing’s first: keep the rosemary and chocolate mint alive.
