There are so many wonderful benefits to getting outside and gardening with the kids, from the simple fresh air and exercise to the different mental challenges for our brains. Not to mention the sense of achievement when the work is done.
Unlike us, plants in our gardens don’t have the luxury of seeking shelter and can only do their best with where they are. Any assistance the garden can get from us at this time of year will make the difference between life and death.
If you need to elevate a dish beyond the ordinary then herbs and spices are the best way to do so.
Instead of the usual parsley, sage, rosemary and thyme, why not try growing chervil, lovage, saffron, salad burnet, savory and sorrel.
