This growing season I will be planting my lower 2 field beds which each measure 45 ft by 6 ft. This is a sunnier site where I have amended the soil with cover crops buckwheat (last spring) and oats (this past fall). I plan to spend more time in the fields this summer growing and drying herbs. This spring I will be selling 4 inch potted herbs for starts.
New herbs will include Anise Hyssop, Tricolor Sage, Silver Sagebrush White,Winter Savory, Lovage, Elcampane and 3 new mints: Peppermint, Varigated and Mojito. I am also excited to try my hand at Lemon Grass and Papalo, a cilantro alternative.
Hopefully, by late summer I will have plenty of dried herbs to make culinary herb seasonings, culinary salts and teas.

Curry Helichysum italicum
An aromatic, ornamental herb. Not the spice herb. Its common name derives from its scent, which can smell like curry. Grow the plant for use in containers, fragrance herb garden, potpourris and wreaths, but not for food.
It is also a natural pest repellent, deer hate it, and it can grow in low water gardens, once established.
