in the Ginger Garden
There is a spot in my garden which gets enough
sun to try a few plants which can be enjoyed in many different
ways, herbs. The herbs I grow I use for cooking. I use them
in salads, teas, stews and soups. I can use them for broiling
fish and I even use them in potpourris. Every herb I have needs
full sun and very well draining soil. The quality of the soil
is not so important as its ability to drain. I only
needed to add a little sand to prep the soil for them.
Not every herb is the same and some require
more fertile soil than others. Some will do well in less sun
than others. But one thing is certain all of my herbs serve
a purpose in my house as well as in my garden. Although I grow
herbs which can serve a medicinal purpose, I don’t use
any in that way. It is easier, safer and more economical to
get standardized preparations from a retailer.
