Spring is the perfect time to start growing your own herbs. Not only are herbs inexpensive, nutritious, easy to grow and care for, but they are also a fun way to welcome the warmer days ahead. If you happen to live in an area where spring comes later, start growing your herbs indoors then move them outside once the weather warms up.
Here are eight amazing, versatile herbs to start planting today:
1. Basil – have you seen all the diffrent varieties out there these days?! Cinnamon. Chocolate. Lime. Yum!
What are your favorites? I like using basil, dill and cilantro to flavor my foods instead of salt.
Find yourself with a bumper crop and don’t know what to do with it all? Chop it up, lay it out on a sheet pan and freeze. Then place in a ziplock freezer bag and dip into this gold mine during the winter months.
