Carolee's Herb Farm

The biggest Herb Farm in Indiana is just a few miles from my house. HOW AWESOME IS THAT!!!!! In fact, Carolee is the one that inspired me to try herbs and in doing so I discovered one of my passions. Today I spent some time 'on the farm' and really enjoyed walking thru her lovely gardens and plant sales.

There are a zillion varieties of herbs to choose from.

The farm Cottage is so adorable.

Looking back towards The Barn Gift Shop from the Cottage

Carolee has just authored a book and I got a sneak peek. I can't wait for it to be released......which will be sometime mid-June she said. Check out her website for more info. Also on her website you can sign up for her very informative newsletter and get yummy recipes using herbs.

  1. It looks like it was a beautiful day to be strolling around such a gorgeous garden...I loved the potty chair!
    Im just starting to go a bit herbal, trying different teas, and adding a little to our meals.I think it is because the kids are getting older, and are willing to try!

  2. WOW! I didn't even know that many herbs existed!! It looks like such a beautiful and fun place to explore! Glad you enjoyed the day.


  3. How wonderful! what an amazing garden. I too am a lover of all herbs and grow them in my garden. Of course my garden is NOTHING like Carolee's :)

    Her cottage is also quite simply Adorable.
