Sage Advice

Growing sage is easy as pie. 

Forget to water?  It's drought hardy. 

Cold climate?
It winters in Minnesota without special accomodation.  

Bad experiences with other weedy herbs (oregano, peppermint)? 
It's non-invasive.  It's really just a small shrub.

In the fall before your sage slumbers for the winter, snip a few sprigs.  Bundle them and hang upside down to dry in your kitchen. When you make turkey, chicken or stuffing, rub a few dried sprigs between your hands and let the savory bits sprinkle over your food before you cook it.

  1. I had no idea sage would do so well in Minnesota. It looks pretty, too. :-)
