Growing Your Own Herbs/Spices

I spend most of my day thinking about food.  Just take a look at my blog, website, Facebook, Twitter, and anywhere else I post and you’ll know I’m typing the truth!  When I ran out of Cumin, I realized I didn’t even know what plant that comes from.  While I’ve been planning to grow more of my culinary essentials for quite a while, lately I’ve really been researching.  I thought I would share with you some links with fantastic information some may not already know.  We all can find basil, thyme, oregano, etc.  Here’s some information on herbs/spices you may not have thought about growing:

Black Pepper

Cayenne Pepper

Coriander (is Cilantro seeds)



Here is a .pdf article with much more:
