Two (Green) Thumbs Up!

The Hubby planted himself an herb garden this year. I think he is just being a show off myself ~ would you look at these?!?

Growing your own herbs is relatively easy even if you don't have a garden. Hubby's are in a medium size pot that he has placed in full sun out in the back yard. He has some parsley, sage, rosemary and thyme, mint, and chives. The the aroma greets you as soon as you get anywhere near the garden.

Herb uses:
