Season with Homegrown Herbs
Many favorite herbs like it hot - basil, for example. But a good number thrive year-round here and a few that even prefer cool,wet weather. Some to add now to a cool-season kitchen garden are parsley, thymes, rosemary, culinary sages, winter savory, chervil, dill and fennel. For pizzazz, pick ‘Kebob’ rosemary with straight stems ideal as BBQ skewers. Find herbs at area nurseries or specialty herb growers like Pearson’s Gardens and Herb Farm in Vista (www.pearsonsgardens.com).
