Okay....I am at it again.....another "blog"....it is that time of year again when I play "Garden House"....(a wannabee herbalist that hasn't any time to be one).....so I PRETEND. I love herbs...everything about them - how they taste, how they smell and how beautiful they look - fascinating plants to say the very least !!
We have an "Herb Faire" every Mother's Day week at The Cinnamon Stick....where we sell hundreds of the best herbs on the market. All our herbs are grown by a husband and wife in Lancaster County. They have two greenhouses and only wholesale ! Each plant is lovingly grown from seeds and cuttings of existing plants. Just one 3" pot of thyme gets FOUR individual plantings before it comes to the store....
I can't explain the feeling you get when you walk into the greenhouses. Enchanting is a good word - as you get lost in the scents of damp earth and aromas of the herbs all blended together.
I am hoping we can get lots of "herb gardeners" - beginners to herbalist - to join in this blog and post about their experiences and how tos and recipes and everything about herbs....Post questions that anyone can answer if they can - share pictures of their gardens, garden treasures and everything else.
Just email me at - firstname.lastname@example.org for the sign in information....then everyone who wishes can join in....all the usual guidelines will be followed about being nice and all that...I think this can be fun....no obligation to post or share - but hope everyone will. I am a novice....but I will tell you all about my fairy gardens.....woohoo!!!
