Name That Herb? - Video

In The Tightwad Tiller's latest fun video post you are quizzed about fresh herbs. Can you recognize basil from oregano? I make it easy for you with footage of five different fresh herbs from my garden. All you have to do is leave a comment with the herb number and your guess - you can get the kids involved too! If you need a cheat sheet, click here for a general list of herbs with photos.

I've grown all kinds of herbs over the years - in an apartment window box to a small condo garden plot. As long as you have a sunny spot, herbs are pretty easy to grow. Just make sure you don't over water them, and pinch off any flowering buds so new plant leaves continue to sprout.

Some herbs will last years, like parsley, oregano, thyme and mint. Others die off after a couple of months, like basil, cilantro and dill.Click here for an herb list of annuals and perennials.

If you want to see some of the herb recipes I've come up with over the years, enter an herb name in the "Search" box in the upper right side of my blog under the title "Enter Ingredient or Recipe Keyword(s)."

So check out my short video below and see if you can pass the herb test.(Answers are in the comments.)
