Your Herb Garden in November

Sage. You may think of it hand in hand with Thanksgiving turkey, for some of our most familiar turkey stuffings are seasoned with sage. And it’s terrific—wonderful flavor, and also aids digestion after a heavy meal. But that’s not its only glory, not by a long shot.

            I hope you have a couple of sage plants in your garden, even if your garden is only a small herb container by the kitchen door, because fresh sage is far superior to dried. The best way to understand its charms is to rub the soft, textured leaves; immediately a warm, rich, almost lemony, almost minty scent envelops and seduces you.
