Garden Fresh

One of the many fabulous summertime perks is having a lush, green garden. If you have a green-thumb then you’re probably eating home-grown veggies and enjoying beautiful flowers by the vase full. And, of course, one of the easiest and most commonly garden-grown treat, herbs!

Herbs add some serious flavor to food. Fresh basil adds a punch to pasta sauces and is unbelievably good on homemade pizza. Home-grown dill will have you eating coleslaw every night. And add fresh mint leaves to you’re iced tea, or simply chew on them to freshen breath!

If you’re an herb-lover then the Herb Keeperfrom Chefs is a must-have. You can store up to three large herb bunches in the clear cylinder. Add about an inch of water to the bottom reservoir and you’ll have fresh herbs right on your counter top for weeks to come!
