Just because it’s colder, doesn’t mean you have to give up on your herb and vegetable garden. Growing fresh food should be a thing you can do 365 days a year.

Here are the best winter herbs and veggies to grow and eat yourself.

Chives

Rosemary
Rosemary is a perennial herb, which means that it can be grown year-round,

Parsley
A good tip is to grow lots and lots of parsley to counteract its slow growth over the winter.
Don’t underestimate the ubiquitous parsley plant; it’s more resilient than you might think. In harsher (cold) climates, parsley will hide underground to keep itself safe

Celery

Thyme
 Thyme is also a great accompaniment to sage, as well as pork.
They will survive over the winter will little to no up-keep, though there will be very little growth as well.

Mint
Mint is a strong herb just like thyme, think of it like a weed they are hard to get rid of because they grow wild. 

Leeks

Basil
Basil is one of the most popular herbs in the world, rich in vitamin K, A, potassium, and calcium, it’s no wonder it’s so popular.
