Candi JohnsIt's spring! It's time to play in the garden! Oh, happiness! Happy, happy days!

I live in the Bluegrass State, also known as Kentucky. The standard rule of gardening around there is to plant your summer varieties after Derby. Derby is always the first Saturday in May (last Saturday), so this is a busy week in the garden.

There is no need to wait until Derby to plant herbs. The Derby rule does not apply to cool-season crops or herbs. Herbs are very forgiving and easy to grow.

If you cannot grow anything, you should grow herbs.

If you do not have a green thumb, you should plant herbs.

If you kill everything you plant, you should give herbs a chance.
