Be sure to include the date of when you stored or harvested them as well.
3. Indoor herb gardens offer another benefit in that you don’t need to worry over the weather outside. Some climates like Michigan which is where I live is super cold in the winter. Obviously this is not favorable for growing herbs. But if you take the indoor growing idea to heart, you can have them growing all year long.
