My Herbs Pot

Hello everyone. Hope you´re all having a good weekend.
Some Portuguese recipes include fresh herbs such as Parsley, Peppermint and Coriander. Once I like to have them really fresh, I have a couple herb pots in my balcony.
The picture above shows one of my pots. This one has Peppermint and Parsley. During Spring my herbs grow very beautiful but in Summer, due to high temperatures (30ªC and more) I have to place them in a shadow or else they turn yellow even when frequently watered. Before summer arrives, I cut my herbs and freeze them in plastic bags. Parsley works best for freezing but I like having Peppermint in case I decide to cook a Chicken Soup and don´t have any fresh.
