No, not plants. Just some cuttings to dry for the flowers. I'm still in an apartment.

Lavender does grow well as a pot flower. I used to dig mine up and bring it in for the winter, until I realized it overwintered.

After I read your post, PF, I thought--FRENCH TARRAGON would be nice in shortbread cookies!!!!

Sorry, I don't have a recipe -- it's still just a new idea I heard about. Maybe, in order to flush out some recipes, savory popsicles deserve a new thread, but I don't know how to start one....

On second thought, the watermelon ones are looking pretty good, but they aren't really savory now are they?

Your shortbread cookies do sound like a Christmas favorite, Russian Teacakes, but quicker and easier than rolling all those little balls.

TinLizzie,
I am not good at making all of those little balls either so I invested in a #40, orchid disher to scoop them out with. It helps keep them the same size and speeds up the process.

I can't wait to try the cookies. I missed this thread when it first got started. I am glad someone brought it back to life. Now it is copied and pasted. Thanks! :)

Forgive my ignorance, but are we talking ice cream scoopers here?
