  • Reflection Question
    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?

    This past spring instead of planting flowers I put in herbs. I have enjoyed the convenience of having them just outside the house. Not having to run to the store I used them more often. With the frost here I made my last harvest and dried them.
