Time for Thyme

Low creeping thyme expands like soft pillows between the flagstones in my patio.Thyme is one of the most widely used herbs. Already the Romans used this very aromatic herb as medicine and for cooking. Plant this hardy plant in your garden or in a pot and experience it yourself, with a glass of good red wine in hand.

But there are some tricks to change the flavor experience that I would like to share.
