Herbs are among the most wonderful simple pleasures of the home garden. They’re easily sourced at the farmer’s market, grocery store, or from friends’ harvests, but growing your own is fulfilling and fun! Herbs bring color and texture to the garden and home. In flower arrangements, herbs’ foliage and flowers add complimentary scents and unique dimension. In cooking, they can be used in myriad ways: in a favorite basil pesto, in an uncommon lemon lavender shortbread and marmalade, or in vinaigrettes that add flavor and flair to a soup or salad.
