Culinary Sage

$4.00

Sage, a beautiful plant that even when planted as an annual, has a bush like structure making it a fantastic addition to edible landscaping.  Because sage isn’t as widely used in the kitchen, you will most likely find that one plant will produce enough sage for all your needs. I plant 2-3 just because I love the structure and beauty they add to my garden. Sold as a plant.

Description

Herbs are an important part of the garden and kitchen. Nothing beats fresh herbs when cooking in the summer and fall. Every winter while adding dried herbs to our meals, I long for the days where I can run out and pick some fresh, thyme, basil, oregano, mint and rosemary.

Growing herbs is so easy to do. Just plant them, and let them grow. I like to keep them close to the house so I can run quickly and grab them even in a summer storm. I also spread them around the garden to help deter unwanted pests and let some go to flower to attract beneficial insects.

Most herbs can be harvested multiple times in a season and develop into better plants if you do so. They also make great under-plantings that act as a mulch below taller crops. For instance, I under planted my peas with thyme last year. I simply scattered thyme seed on the soil after I planted my pea seed. Water everything in. When the peas were done, I cut out the pea plants, and let the thyme grow in strong the rest of the summer. It’s a wonderful system. Oregano is great in and around things like peppers, flowers, okra, etc.

Cilantro is one herb that I allow to readily reseed itself in the garden each year. If I have cilantro flowering in the garden, I rarely have a large population of those pesky cabbage worms that eat all my kale and broccoli.
