Growing Parsley?

If you’re growing parsley or love to add it to your dishes, here is an interesting bit of info. Each year, the International Herb Association (IHA) designates an herb to be crowned the ‘Herb of the Year.’ This long-standing tradition dates back to 1995, and the selection process involves herb societies, groups, and experts from all around the world. For 2021, the herb selected by the IHA just so happens to be parsley.

it’s an herb I love to include in my tower garden every year, especially, since in my climate, if I grow in spring and summer, it will continue giving at times, even through to the following spring.
