Mother loved growing herbs. Here are a few of her tips.

Directions:
Directions:
Mint: Dry leaves before chopping for storage in baggies. Peppermint is preferred for medicinal use. Put a few fresh leaves in boiling water and inhale to ease nasal congestion. Can also be made into a tea to help nausea, travel sickness, indigestion and migraines.
Basil: (leaves and stems) Good on tomatoes, squash and beans. Cut at flowering. Dry upside down in a bag. Basil leaves are also good for rubbing on insect bites to reduce itching.
Chives: Tubular leaves can be frozen. Good on soups, salads, bread, eggs and veggies.
Dill: Leaves can be used anytime on fish, meats, eggs and poultry. Seeds can be used in pies, on vegetables and in soups. Fresh dill seeds can be shaken into a paper bag for storage.
