The Tarragon is Back

This picture is probably not so exciting for you, but for me, it is. My French tarragon is coming up. It's one of my very favorite herbs. I love the way it numbs your tongue if you slip a leaf in your mouth while weeding. I restrained myself, the shoots are just too small.

Tarragon is one of the things I put in my "interesting" salads all summer. French tarragon does not form seeds. If you see tarragon seeds, they are for Russian tarragon and you will be disappointed. This one you have to buy at a nursery or get from a herb growing friend. It's not a really pretty plant, but it is delicious!
