Planting your own herb garden is easy and doesn't require a lot of space. The rewards of harvesting fresh herbs all season long, and also drying herbs for the winter, are well worth the small investment of time and effort.
When you put the garden to bed, make sure to harvest those bushy herb clumps for winter soups and stews!
