"Oh, better, no doubt, is a dinner of herbs, When seasoned by love, which no rancor disturbs, And sweetened by all that is sweetest in life, Than turbot, bisque, ortolans, eaten with strife"
- Edward G. Bulwer-Lytton, British politician, poet, critic and prolific novelist, 1803-1873. Source: thinkexist.com

People’s use of wild herbs for food and medicine predates written history. Since then, philosophers, theologians, healers, magi, cooks, beauticians, authors and poets have written about the virtues of these precious plants.

With curative powers and cosmetic uses to rejuvenating aromas and delightful flavours, herbs offer a natural way to rejuvenate our quality of life. But how simple, easy, or affordable is it to make such an addition?

It’s not too much of a challenge to add a little herb box to your home on a windowsill in your kitchen. If you know your herbs and are a bit of a green thumb, that is. If you are a complete novice when it comes to edible plants, you’ll be facing a bit of a learning curve. A small herb box is affordable and a pretty easy upgrade for your kitchen.

But what happens if you are a real gourmand living in the Greater Toronto Area (GTA)? With the growing season so short, backyard gardens only get you so far. You can infuse oils and preserve herbs, of course, but there is no substitute for fresh. But how big an indoor herb garden can you conceivably have, even in a high-end kitchen?

You can build a greenhouse in your garden (if you get the permits for it), and trudge through the snow (or freezing rain, if this year is indicative of Toronto winters to come). Is there a better way to make the herbal addition?
