Grow and harvest 2 kinds of herb

This is a badge bit (BB) that is part of the Level 1 badge in Gardening.

Herbs have many uses, including culinary, medical, and others. Most are pretty tough and can be a good introduction to the world of perennials.

To complete this BB, the minimum requirements are:

  • Research your favorite herbs, and choose several that will grow well in your conditions.
  • Plant seeds or transplants of your chosen herbs. You may use bought seeds or transplants, or ones you grow yourself.
  • Grow the herbs to maturity, and harvest them. Some herbs may be harvested multiple times over the season.
  • Optional: dry some of your herb harvest to use over the winter.

To document your completion of the BB, provide the following:

  • List of your herbs, with the growing conditions they need
  • Photo of your herbs being planted
  • In-progress photos of the herbs growing
  • Photos of harvested herbs
  • Bonus: photos of your herbs being used!
