    Food Plant an Herb Garden
    Consider the ways you can garden: a plot of land? a patio container? hanging basket? windowsill gardens? What would work best for your living situation and lifestyle?

    We already had an herb garden, but I cleared ours out. We had a few strawberry plants, and some sage and oregano which are perennial. When it gets a little warmer I will add basil and parsley.

    My family is part of a CSA, so it is easy to have one food item that we center around. This week, I also foraged some ramps, which made a great pesto!
