Start Preparing for Christmas Early

It's never too early to start preparing for the Christmas holidays. This is my mantra. I'm a dedicated herb gardener and crafter, and many of my asked for gifts are herb related. If you don't have an herb garden started yet, any time of year is a good time to begin. Either indoors or outdoors will do. My blog, The Herb Gardener will help you.

Once you have some herbs going, you can use the leaves, flower and seeds to make great, one-of-a-kind gifts for friends and family.
What do you think of homemade herb blends like bouquet garni, herbs de Provence, or Old Bay Seasoning. How about decorative seed packets for friends, wrapped with fabric and sporting their own computer generated planting sticks. If you are intrigued, visit some of my blogs to learn how to turn your herbs into gifts, or buy herbs to make into gifts.

Seasons Greetings
