yesterday in the herb garden
Pretty, isn't it? But this is even more importantly, a TASTY garden.
In other words, these are culinary herbs, used for nutrition and for flavoring the other foods you eat.
Pinch them to keep them pretty, but use the trimmings!
And if you can't use them today, then learn how to preserve them for later.
Dry them, freeze them, pickle them, sauce them ... in the dead of winter you'll remember this day from the flavors of your herbs.
Dear reader: Please make some time this weekend to read this speech by a modern American hero.
The situation has only gotten worse since he spoke these words, but there is always hope, right?
