If I’m ranking my favorite things, I must admit that herbs fall second. My first love is books. I love a new book’s promise of knowledge and adventure. And, free books are an absolute treat.
If you like herbs, gardens, books, the environment, you need Rodale’s Basic Organic Gardening : A Beginner’s Guide to Starting a Healthy Garden, by Deborah L. Martin. And you can have it for free by entering the HSA Blog CONTEST.
Tell us your favorite herb and why – by May 5, 2018 –to enter a contest to win my review copy of the book. Simply state the herb and why in the comment section below this post or send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. All names will be put into a drawing. Winner will be notified in mid-May.
I’ll go first. My favorite herb is thyme, specifically lemon thyme. It grows prolifically with little care. It blooms the sweetest little purple flowers. It smells delicious when I brush my hand across it. It retains its flavor in dried form. Just like lemon, it punches up the flavor of almost any dish that calls for thyme.
I can’t wait to hear what you like best and why.
