Okay, so another non-food related post. But without recipes made last weekend, I’m not really sure what else to talk about.
We are now in the second week of March and the temperatures in Connecticut are slowly beginning to tick up. The snow is melting, the grass is beginning to turn green once again. Spring is on the way!
This is around the time of year where I usually start thinking about whether or not I want to plant some herbs. The last few years I haven’t, but with the herbal studies in full force, I think it would be in my best interest to plant some. Of course, the hardest part (or is it the most fun?) is deciding which herbs to grow. Sometimes my family and I would plant strictly culinary herbs such as parsley and basil. In years passed I grew some medicinal herbs as well like chamomile and lavender to name a few. I even planted dandelion one year much to my father’s chagrin.
Once I took a hiatus from studying herbal remedies, and other interests filled my time, I didn’t have much energy or even thought of gardening. But now, it seems like a perfect growing season to do it.
Tomorrow I will be posting an herbalism update, my first official one! Then Thursday, we will return to the regularly scheduled food-related posts!
Until next time…
