I've got my bulbs planted! This is great information for those that are just starting out. MostRead More people probably assume that you can't grow much in the winter, but you'd be surprised to learn how much you can!

This is great, Jennifer! Thank you for sharing. I also have a herb "Patch" in my yard, butRead More the soil and conditions are probably a bit different here (I'm next to a freeway in what used to be swampland about 100 years ago...lol). Anyway, I grew sage from small seedlings bought at OSH about two years ago and it has fully matured and requires little upkeep. I have cilantro, chives and chamomille as well as Yerba Buena and basil (all from seedlings and most fully established). There really isn't anything more relaxing than losing yourself doing gardening and having edibles is a bonus. Along with my herbs I also grow jalapeños, bell peppers, tomatoes, snap peas, squash and my 5-year-old planted some granny apples to boot! The only thing that we did grow from seeds were the snap peas and apples, though I'll have to check in in about five years as to the status of said apples ;) OH! As for the mint usage ... they're great for mojitos too.
