Why I Love Gardening with Herbs

I wanted to share this picture with anyone who might be wary of venturing into herb gardening. THIS is why I love gardening with herbs! I planted these herbs from itty bitty stems of an herb plant last year, put them in the ground, did nothing (didn't even water them), let them die off for the winter and they came up all by themselves this year! So now I have a bumper crop of chives and oregano with no effort from me!
While many people are enjoying harvests of tomatoes, stawberries and other garden treats every summer I am (sometimes also enjoying those but...) ALWAYS enjoying cups of chopped up chives in my eggs, handfuls of fresh oregano in my spaghetti and teapots full of orange and apple-mint leaf tea! And the nutritional benefits of these herbs are either equal or MORE than the vegetables and fruits I also grow (when it works out LOL!).
