Poll: Growing Your Own Culinary Herbs

If there is a downside of using culinary herbs in cooking, it is probably that herbs are expensive. As an example, our local store sells a 1.5-ounce bottle of dried sage for $3.29. That doesn’t sound too bad until you figure out that it is more than $35 per pound! The most obvious solution to getting around the high cost of herbs is to grow your own.

    • I noticed the same issue of not displaying my answers on a quiz I answered yesterday. Maybe the server is burping.

      A lot of people can’t or won’t grow herbs. Others think it is much harder than it is. Some of them make very pretty houseplants, though.
