An ancient herb that will thrive in most conditions, thyme is perfect for a hobby gardener. It can be used in cooking, for medicine, and for various other benefits, and its only disadvantage is that if it’s healthy it will spread throughout your garden. Depending on how you plant, this can be an asset since it is a low, soft plant that can be used in pathways or to fill an area where other plants won’t grow. Thyme can also be grown in containers for a kitchen garden.

- Kirsten Lie-Nielsen
I grew up on a small farm and spent my youth riding horses competitively and gnawing on fresh vegetables from our garden. I moved away, went to college and spent time working in customer service, but the taste of fresh vegetables is kind of addicting. Our small farm has expanding gardens, a small flock of chickens, two geese, and is growing every season.
