If you enjoy cooking, and like to use herbs to enhance the flavor

of your meals, then there is nothing better than using fresh herbs.


Great food can be very simple to prepare, but with the use a few

fresh herbs, your meal can become a masterpiece.


Once you've begun to use fresh herbs, you'll never want to go

back to using dried herbs again.


Of course purchasing fresh herbs from your supermaket can be

quite expensive, and requires planning ahead.  Often you end up

with more herbs than you need to use, and certain fresh herbs

don't keep well for long periods of time.


The alternative is to have your own "Herb Garden".


You may grow your herbs in an area in your yard, in pots on your

patio, or even on your kitchen window sill. 


Just keep in mind that herbs like a warm climate and plenty of

sunshine; approximately 4 hours daily.


Why not give it a try?  There's very little work or time involved.

You'll always enjoy having fresh herbs right at your fingertips.
