Since the COVID-19 virus has affected our lives, more and more people are putting in vegetable and herb gardens. Gardens will reduce the food we have to buy from the market, thus helping us benefit our pocketbook and exposure to others. Most home gardeners don’t have the garden space to grow infinite varieties of produce so we must choose the plants we will use that fit in the space we have.

This information is specifically for herbs but some of the same questions can be asked when planning a vegetable garden.
