Herb Bed Additions
While out picking up a few more tomatoes for the garden I ran across these two herbs. Horehound and Apple Mint. In additional to being a medicinal herb, Horehound produces a great flower for the bees. There are several recipes for cough drops out there that I may give a try. The Apple mint brings back found memories of the huge clump my mom had growing in the corner of our large vegetable garden growing up. It can be used for everything from a refreshing tea to a facial toner and even jelly! Good finds today!
