These thoughts have led to learning more about herbs and herb garden designs. For small scale farming, such as occurs on our homestead, this seems the most practical way to grow. A wide array of fresh herbs offers the greatest benefit to both urban farmer and chef. One has only to sprinkle the right seasoning on an otherwise bland dish to appreciate the culinary value of a well-chosen herb. I imagine herbs can be financially profitable … have you seen the price of a small packet of fresh herbs at the supermarket?!
Will I do it? I don’t know. Will I find a chef partner? I don’t know. Will it be profitable? I don’t know. Is it worth it? Yes, it already is. Reading and learning are great ways to spend rainy winter days. And there is something wonderful about creating and designing, even if it is only on graph paper with pencil marks for now.
