Growing your own Homegrown Herbs can supply you with herbs all year long, even in the winter. The photo above is my first cutting of the year and is only a few of the herbs we planted. How I use my herbs in the winter is by dehydrating them in the summer when they are exploding with leaves. I use the fresh herbs as I need them and dehydrate the rest. They charge a fortune for fresh and dried herbs in the store and I like knowing there are no chemicals on my herbs.
The nice thing about growing your own herbs is that you don’t even need a garden. We have ours in a raised bed in our garden but did you know you can plant them in individual pots too? You could even put them in your flower beds amongst the other plants. The secret to having successfull herbs is making sure they have water of course, especially if you use a pot, and keeping them cut so they don’t flower. Keeping them cut encourages the herbs to keep producing those wonderful leaves.
