I know I haven’t gotten back into a regular Friday PhotoEssay habit yet, and I think it is going to have to wait one more week. Besides, I’m tired of posting construction pictures!
Tomorrow (Saturday, May 5th) is our 17th annual Herb Day! We will be featuring the National Herb of the Year: Rose, from 7 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the Extension Center.
Guest Speaker, Jim Long, owner of Long Creek Herbs in Blue Eye, MO, will share with participants about “How to Eat a Rose” and “Growing & Using the 10 Most Popular Herbs.” He is a regular columnist for The Herb Companion magazine and his gardens have been featured in many publications and TV shows.
In addition, seminars by members of the Herb Society and Master Gardeners will cover topics relating to growing and cooking with herbs. Plant vendors from around the region will have herbs and other plants for sale. Of course, the Kansas Grown! Farmers Market will be going on in the parking lot.
