Potted Herbs for your Kitchen

By: Meriel Bradley

This is a great project if you love cooking with fresh herbs through those cold winter months.

You can plan to plant herbs in the garden during the summer to bring in during the cold months, or if you don’t have any in the garden, look in your local food store for fresh potted herbs, they can generally be found in the produce section of the store
