Herbs are an ancient category of the plant world. Found almost everywhere, herbs have been defined generally as “the useful plants.” Besides adding beauty, herbs are used for cooking, making scents and perfumes, practicing aromatherapy, herbal healing in folklore and in modern medicine, and attracting bees and butterflies to the garden.

The potato is one of America's most popular vegetables. Each year, Americans eat an average of 125 pounds of potatoes per person. Solanum tuberosum--also called the Irish potato--is a cool season crop. During the winter and spring months, Florida's commercial farms grow and supply much of the country with "new" potatoes.

A home-grown and freshly harvested potato tastes very different from one that has been sitting in storage or on a grocery shelf for months. You can get new potato flavor at home by following our recommendations.
