Springtime is here. It’s time to get out your gardening equipment, till the soil, and prepare for your garden. It’s been a long hard winter, but all of that extra snow has actually had a positive effect on something- extra moisture in the soil. This extra water will help your plants thrive and have an advantage right from the start! If you’re planning on having a vegetable garden, try getting your plants in the ground by Mother’s Day.
I often get calls from my friends and family with cooking questions, one of the most frequent questions I get asked is, “I’m cooking such and such, what herbs should I use?” Talk about an open-ended question with infinite answers.
