You can grow and cook with herbs and if you've never tried to grow and cook with herbs then you need to get started now. I grow my own herbs every year and use them in my cooking.
You've never lived until you use your own fresh grown herbs to make a delicious homemade basil pesto or marinara sauce. Purple heirloom basil is truly one of the best tasting herbs you will ever grow and taste.
You can grow a few herbs in a window or you can start a herb garden in your back yard. Maybe even start a home business growing and selling homegrown herbs.
