Virginia Herb Festival

This year I took the kids the the Virginia Herb Festival.  It is in Middletown, VA at Sunflower Cottage.  They had a program of talks regarding herbs, different ways to use them and grow them. Since I had the kids with me I wasn't able to listen to the lectures but we did enjoy walking around and looking at the flowers and lavender.  I also picked up a couple of herbs that you don't see often, a Bay leaf plant, and chocolate mint.  Chocolate mint....mmmm....looking forward to using that!  I am sure it can be used in some desserts, someone also suggested infusing vodka and making a chocolate mint we're talking!

'til next time...
