Celebrate Earth Day - Grow Your Own Herbs!

Yesterday, I had a delightful day at a local farmer's market! It is so refreshing to peruse the many stalls selling their farm-fresh produce, meat, flowers, and herbs. I picked up some sweet basil, french tarragon, lemongrass (which I am very excited about), and a chocolate-mint plant! Other herbs I always grow are rosemary, thyme, sage, chives, and lavender. I LOVE growing my own herbs. Nothing beats being able to walk outside and snip-off what I need. In addition, I like to know that my herbs haven't been sprayed with nasty chemicals and are as fresh as it gets. If you haven't grown herbs before, I strongly suggest that you do. They are cheap, exceptionally easy to grow, and add beauty to any garden. If you don't have a garden to grow them, they do equally well in pots, handsomely perched on a sunny windowsill.
