GinaFor many of us, the weather is not quite where we want it to be for gardening. So we want to know: How have you been caring for your herbs this winter? We asked our Facebook fans how they are caring for their herbs as they patiently wait for the arrival of spring. Many of you, eager to dig into your spring garden, have learned that patience is a virtue and have been caring for your potted herbs indoors until the timing is right. Here are some of our Facebook fan's answers:
