Herb Garden Yields Unexpected Perks
I put in a huge, raised-bed herb garden this year. I had huge gardens in years past, but I rarely grew any spices.
This year, in a 4x4 raised bed and a few pots, I have: cilantro, cinnamon basil, curled parsley, german thyme, hot and spicy oregano, lemon balm, sage, spearmint, stevia, sweet basil, tarragon…and probably some I’m leaving out.
I’ve been drying them. I’ll be keeping a good bit, but I’m putting together a big package for my daughter who is a real foodie. Each time, after I pull the leaves of each herb off of the delicate stem and place them in a pile for packaging, I give myself a wonderful treat.
I put my hands together, bring them to my face and take a long whiff. The aromas are wonderful!
Who else here has an herb garden? What’s your favorite part of growing your own? (That sounds funny, but you know what I mean…LOL)
