Caraway Thyme

This is only one plant, but it slowly covers bare patches and creeps nicely along pavers. It is easy to rip out, if it starts trespassing. When it starts flowering, it is absolutely stunning.
Rub the leaves between your fingers and you will enjoy the scent of caraway. Very nice in cooking.
Very nice to look at, too. At one end you can see some basil mint that managed to escape from a pot.

Thanks for all your kind words.

You can use the herb in any dishes where you'd like a little (or a lot of) caraway flavour. Risotto, roast potatoes, stews, soups, any pasta sauce, etc.
