Herbs are one of the most common items used in kitchens across the entire world. I bet right now in your own home you have jars of oregano, basil, thyme, chives and sage.
How about loose leaf tea or tea bags?
All of these items are things that you can grow in your very own herb garden. The cost to get started herb gardening is relatively low and your garden can be planted in a small space that doesn't even have full sun.
When someone is either a seasoned gardener or a beginning gardener there are two things that I always suggest to get started.
1. An herb garden in the spring, summer and fall.
2. Planting garlic in the fall.
We will discuss reasons to plant garlic later on in your homestead and gardening journey.
