Reasons to Have A Small Herb Garden

There are many uses for them on your homestead. Keeping your own small herb garden is easy. Here are eight reasons to do so.

Having your own herb garden means you can have any herb you want on hand and fresh, without the need to substitute for dry ones.

Herbs at grocery stores or even farmers’ markets can be quite pricey, especially if you are trying to make some delicious sauces or pesto that need larger quantities.

Fresh herbs offer many health benefits. Most are anti-inflammatory, high in antioxidants, and help aid in digestion.

Herbs are aromatic and pleasing to the eye. They make great additions if you want to add a few pops of color, like violet from lavender.

Most herbs are quite easy to grow, which makes them less stressful and more fun compared to other plants in the garden.

A small herb garden offers what most stores can’t and that is variety. There are hundreds of herbs to choose from and the choice is yours.
