I love growing my own herbs! No matter where we’ve lived, I’ve always found the space for at least a small container herb garden. They’re just so easy to grow, so useful, and save me from spending money on the fresh “live” herbs available at the grocery store (which half the time, die within a week for me). But sometimes, I don’t use as many herbs as usual, or my plants are just extra prolific. Which is what led me recently to go looking for ways to use up my extra herbs. Here are 10 Creative Ways to Use Herbs from Your Garden!
