I can understand George giving his herbs away for free. There is simply no price that can be attached to such a wonderfully sharing gift as freshly grown food.
If your taste buds still work then you know fresh herbs are a joyful inclusion in any cooking and George has a few hints to help make it better. He reminded me to add them last, just prior to serving as the aromas are so much of what herbs are about. He reckons a big mistake many make is to add them too early and the cooking loses the subtleties.
When we chatted with George today he was saying the Winter was limiting what he could offer but was pleased we were enjoying his produce just the same. He happily told us what he had planned for next season and how his multicultural neighbours had been an influence in those plans.
I’ve read about community and suburban gardens but for me this ‘picking-herbs-from-someone-else’s-front-yard’ is kind of strange. It feels a bit like stealing.
