Using Herbs

"I have so much [insert herb name here] and don't know how to use it all!" Come summer time, your herb gardens are thriving and you want to be able to harvest the rewards.

A Summer Solstice Soiree

With some tough weather under our belt, I have no doubt that the first day of summer is one we can all look forward to. A time of rest, relaxation, BBQs, and vacations, when summer is in the air, I can't help but feel like a school girl facing three months of blissful freedom! On Friday, June 21st, the sun will appear highest in the sky, making this day the longest of the year. It is the first day of summer.
