Spring Herbs and Vegetables

Magnolia and Shrub pitcherSpring has sprung and there are loads of new, green plants available for our winter-weary bodies.  Keep an eye out for seasonal vegetables, herbs, and edible flowers at your local grocer and farmer’s market.  You can tell when something is in season because it will be at the lowest price you can get it all year!
