Grow herbs and use them in your kitchen, crafts, and herbal remedies. Herbs are a great introduction to gardening, and they're also a wonderful way to get your children interested in nature.

I've been maintaining this blog since the end of 2007, and in that time have produced quite a bit of content -- going on 500 posts or so. Sometimes good tips, tricks and plant profiles get lost in the stacks (or the electronic equivalent), so I wanted to take the time to review a few personal favorites. You may be celebrating the holiday with a backyard get together or a trip to a local park to watch fireworks, but if you have some time today or over the weekend, take a few minutes to review these older posts. They're great with a morning cup of coffee -- in the garden, of course.
