Year-Round Eats

My house is perched on a steep hill, practically in the woods. Vegetable gardening, therefore, takes some creative plotting.

But one thing that is a successful mainstay is my decorative herb garden. Along the stone stairway in my backyard I have planted thyme, rosemary & mint. They are woody varieties so they thrive all winter.

I just put on my knee-high rubber boots & slosh through snow & mud. With my kitchen scissors I snip verdant rosemary or thyme tops to slip into my beef stew.

After all, you can't get more local than your backyard.
