Herb Extravaganza

The New York Unit of the Herb Society of America will hold it's 61st annual Herb Fair this week at the John Jay Homestead. The fair will feature oodles of herbs, jams, jellies, vinegars, and baked goods, according to The New York Times. There will also be lovage soup, whose scent the Times reporter described as "like celery mingled with anise." According to the Herb Society, which also maintains a permanent garden at the site (left), the proceeds will support local gardens. The fair is this Thursday from 11:00 am to 2:00 pm. Image: Doug P
