Herbs are so rewarding and easy to grow—in herb gardens, containers or flower beds. When called for in a recipe, just snip a few leaves. Once you've enjoyed homegrown herbs in recipes, you'll never want to go back to store-bought herbs. Have extra herbs? Snip a few and make a fresh herb potpourri. Herbs can also be dried for winter-time use.
