Container and backyard gardening is a way to grow vegetables and herbs in small spaces. With herbs such as fresh Thyme, Basil growing in containers pots or other suitable containers is convenient way for the gourmet cook to have fresh herbs a few steps away.
Many years ago when I learned about a dietary food supplement company that provided information about the whys in there products, that was for me. They provided information about the harvest to the table and other processes that may diminish the nutritional content, that rung a bell with me. I have included strawberries in my backyard garden to have this antioxidant fresh berry for a quick snack.
Thyme is also apart of the backyard garden. There are many good websites about gardening and organic gardening. Thyme is used in cooking as well as for nutritional purposes.
