Herbs

WHY I PLANT HERBS

The first memory of herbs was my mother’s patch of garden sage at the edge of our vegetable garden. As a young child I remember my mother seeping sage tea when there were colds or flu in my family. Her remark always was “sage tea is good for whatever ails you”. I would sip it and try to get it past my taste buds by holding my nose. When I married and had a family of my own I became more interested in herbs. I began to cook with herbs and read books. My children grew up with green flecks flavoring their foods and a large herb garden behind my house. When cooking a meal we would run out and cut some of this and that to season the food. I also seep some sage tea when I have those cold or flu symptoms. And there is evidence to the benefits of sage tea!
