Herb of the Month: Savory

Savory is also the 2015 Herb of the Year. Go to http://www.herbsociety.org to learn about savory's history and uses. You'll find out why savory is known as the "bean herb." There is also a recipe for "Black and White Bean Soup" which is really enticing given the frigid days we've been having.

Dear HCU members:

Happy 2015 Herbies! We hope that everyone had enjoyable holidays. A great big "Thank You" goes to Becky Ellisor for hosting our Member's Luncheon last month at her beautiful home. The tables were festive; the food was delicious and a merry time was had by all!

Even though it's  January and is very cold outside, there are still some things to do in your garden and to prepare for Spring. Now is the perfect time to clean, repair, and service your garden tools and equipment. Also, plant any bare root fruit trees, nut trees, and roses this month. January is the perfect time to trim and re-shape evergreen trees and shrubs and shade trees. In mid to late January, plant spinach, snap peas, and onion transplants. Get a jump on the season by sowing seeds in flats or containers: petunias, begonias, impatiens. Tomatoes, peppers, and beans can be started in late January to mid-February.

We'll start our first business meeting of the new year with a very apropos program entitled "Healthy Snacks and Appetizers" by Nan Perkins. We look forward to seeing you at the meeting!


Marian and DeAnn
