Doing the local thing in the beautiful Black Hills of South Dakota. I love to garden, cook, talk about life and times and ponder how lucky I am to live in this magical place.

Herbs a muck
When we moved to South Dakota, I assumed whatever I planted would simply die because it SNOWED here. Well, not so much. Mint NEVER dies. I started with one each small 4" spearmint, peppermint and chocolate mint plants and hello, I have now have an 8 x 15 foot mint garden (and it's moving into the neighbors garden which, fortunately, she is cool with). That's a lot of mint friends. So I've been drying it along with the lemon balm and lemon verbena and making tea. Cute little tea bags filled with herbs. More to come this winter :-)
