Celebrate All Things HERBAL

National Herb Day is this month! Did you know that? I didn't. Herbs are used in food, medicine, beauty products, and crafts, so they are a part of our daily life, whether we realize it or not. What would "Turkey Day" dressing be without SAGE, and ROSEMARY is not only used in crafts but cooking certain meats also. 
Growing your own herbs is very doable for anyone. Grow them in your flowerbed, in pots on your deck, or in your garden . Some are perennials-come back every year-and some are annuals-only last 1 year.
If you would like to learn about All Things Herbal, come to Hidden Lake Gardens this Saturday in the beautiful Irish Hills of Southern  The event is free with $3 garden admission and takes place 11am-3pm. Discover the art and joy of growing herbs, enjoy cooking demos,educational seminars,kids activities , and plants & products for sale from several vendors who will be present.
