Imagine a warm, breezy October morning. You open the gate and step into the herb garden. The air is crisp and cool, but your herbs are flourishing. Delicious smells waft around you. A lazy bee circles the lavender. Tarragon grows in a patch of sun, giving off the poignant scent of anise. Rosemary (for remembrance) grows in spiky heaps. The basil has grown knee-high. You brush your hands over the mint and imagine making sweet tea and jelly. You hunker down and pinch a sprig of oregano--it will be perfect for flatbread pizza tonight. Don't forget a handful of dill for the warm potato salad, along with sage for your cornbread (add chopped, fried bacon bits and a handful of chopped chives).
