Ahh, the freshness of herbs. There’s nothing like it! I can’t tell you how many times I’ve bought some dried basil at the store and then gotten home to find that it just doesn’t taste as good as fresh basil. And while it might be tempting to skip growing your own herbs and buying them instead, there’s a big cost difference between homegrown herbs and store-bought ones (and not just because of the hidden costs like pesticides). Plus, growing your own means you can treat yourself with a little culinary indulgence every time you add them to a recipe or use them in a tea blend. In this blog post, we’ll cover:
