Yesterday was the 25th anniversary of Maymont's Herbs Galore and More and I was lucky enough to attend. This was a first for me as I have never had to pay a cover charge ($3) to shop. It was well worth it though, as I found several herbs to fill in the gaps of my garden not to mention the entry fee went to support the Maymont Foundation. I also learned that there are more kinds of basil and thyme than I could have ever imagined!
The vendors weren't just selling herbs. There was also hand made pottery, food, original art and my fav find of the day-- local honey.
I also wanted to share that the most exciting herb I found yest. wasn't at the herbfest. Popped in to Tom Leonard's to pick up a few things for dinner and tripped over some Thai Basil!
