Intro and Outro

INTRO:

It's always fun to try new things, and that holds true in gardening too. Besides flowers and vegetables, have you ever thought of trying to grow your own herbs? They may look dainty, but that does not mean that they are finicky or hard to care for. Rather, this edition of "High Plains Home & Yard" will talk about several types of herbs that are easy to grow.

OUTRO:

Herbs are a healthy, very low calorie way to spice up your recipes without adding salt. Not to mention that the herbs you grow will go great with your vegetable harvest! So give your taste buds and yourself something new to look forward to by adding herbs to this year's garden.
