Container Growing and Holiday Turkey Dinners
It seems that cooking and gardening do go hand in hand! You can grow your own rosemary (Rosmarinus officinalis) for that turkey stuffing in your garden container indoors and outdoors. The miniature rosemary Christmas trees are everywhere this time of year. You can use your "tree" and decorate for the season and/or just snip off a few stems to use in your turkey stuffing. Rosemary can last many seasons; however, they will need to be moved to larger pots as they get bigger. They are tough little plants and can stand dry climate and low sunlight for a period of time. Keep them watered well. One of the easiest ways to do this is to simply place a handful of ice cubes on top of the soil. The cubes melt slowly and reduce the change of water puddles around the planter.
