Herb Day

Herbs deserve some celebrating, as they are among the most rewarding plants to grow at home. They can easily kick up the flavor of meals, while simultaneously improving physical health. As the weather gets colder, opportunities to cultivate herbs outdoors diminish, yet the need to eat well and fend off the flu only grows. In recognition of national Herb Day, celebrated October 14, now is the perfect time to start your indoor garden. With fresh herbs just steps away, you'll be able to harvest healthy ingredients in your slippers.
