It’s Earth Day and, if it doesn’t rain as predicted, we will be up to our elbows in dirt. Gardening has become an integral part of our lives and it’s very satisfying to grow our own food.
Recently, I have become a bit herb crazed. I am training rosemary trees into topiary balls and my kitchen counter is rapidly losing space to all the greenery. Herbs are easy to grow and smell divine. I am hosting a lunch tomorrow and, in lieu of floral arrangements, I have planted my favorite herbs in terracotta pots to be the centerpieces. Guests will have packets of seeds at their seats, instead of chocolates, with the hope that they will catch the gardening bug too.
