Grow Your Herbs
Instead of going out to buy herbs, why don’t you try growing them in the convenience of your own garden or kitchen windowsill? You’ll have delicious, healthy herbs, without any of the additional plastic or herbicides they put on herbs at the store. Author Hollie Newton recommends, starting with “the dependable, everyday-cooking herbs, like basil, sage, coriander, mint and rosemary. But you can try out so many interesting varieties. I am currently growing Moroccan mint outside my back door, and lemon thyme which works amazingly with chicken. I also love growing chives, because the flowers are edible and they look great in salads.” With so many different varieties, you might even have a hard time selecting a few to grow!
