NEW OTHER COMMON HERBS FAVE


Chives, Mongolian

Perennial
This is another herb that was given to me by Allium expert and renowned seed saver, John Swenson. Mongolian chives have become my go-to chive variety because of their robust flavor and because they are so easy to grow. They always look good, even in the heat and drought of the summer! The leaves are flat like regular Asian chives, but wider and thicker for more flavor and substance. They grow back quickly after cutting. The flowers are pale lavender and the bees love them!

NEW ADVENTUROUS HERBS


Fennel, Bronze

Annual
This is a non-bulbing type of fennel that is used for its leaves and seeds. The leaves are a gorgeous reddish bronze color and are a tasty addition to salads, cole slaws, and dressings. I like to use it in tea too. The seeds can be used in place of anise seeds in baking. Swallowtail butterfly caterpillars love the leaves!
