Redford IART Festival

Hi everyone!

Last weekend we were part of a 3 day weekend festival. We had our DTL Herb booth set up and we were also selling Kettle Corn both outside and in the Marquee. It was a very busy weekend for us.

I thought I would share a few pictures of some of the things that were going on around us.

They had a line up of entertainment inside the Marquee as well. There was music, dancing, magic, fencing, karate, painting and a lot more.


Lots of activities were planned both inside and out.

Outside entertainment all weekend long.


There was even a bra auction! Say what? People decorated bras and they went up on a silent auction. Ours is the top center picture (a pink bra with an herb planter inside it). All the proceeds went to benefit the Redford Parks and Art Conservancy and Gilda's Club.

It was one long hot busy weekend but, it was also a lot of fun!

Redford Farmer’s Market Planter

Hi everyone!

One of the farmer’s Markets that we sell at is the Redford market. This is such an awesome market! Our customers are wonderful, the market manager is amazing and all the other vendors are fun to be around.


And the venue is such a fantastic place! it is a round brick pavilion with large open windows. So, when it rains, we can still have the market. And no setting up the tent!


Melinda, our wonderful market manager at Redford asked a couple of vendors if they would like to donate and create a planter box for the Marquee.


So, of course ours is not filled with flowers but, instead they are filled with yummy herbs!


This planter is going to fill in beautifully in a couple of weeks.


Let’s see, we have……

  • Purple Basil
  • Sweet Basil
  • Oregano
  • Parsley
  • Cuban oregano
  • Rosemary
  • Chives
  • Sage
  • Thyme

Have you ever thought to plant a herb container garden? This planter is so pretty and it is edible. Keep snipping and using the herbs and the planter will stay full and lush all season!


We also create customized herb planter for a local businesses. This is one at a pizzeria that is filled with Italian cooking herbs.

Ham and Pasta Salad

Hi everyone!

One of the things I try to always have in the fridge during this time of the year is some kind of cold salad.

Here is a quick and easy cold salad recipe.


Vegi Dip Pasta & Ham Salad 


  • 1 package of DTL Herb Chive and Dill Vegi Dip
  • 3/4 – 1 cup of Mayo
  • 3/4 - cup of sour cream
  • 1/4 cup of chopped green onions
  • 1 cup of chopped ham
  • 1 box of pasta (your choice)


Mix Chive and Dill Vegi dip with mayo and sour cream. Boil noodles. Once noodles are cooked, rinse in cold water. Toss in green onions and ham. Stir in Vegi dip. Put in fridge for at least an hour. Serve cold.


You can chop up some fresh chives or dill to garnish.

I made this salad three times last week because I kept forgetting to take a picture. This is when I would remember to take the picture:
