Gardeners’ almanac (Dec. 10)

Norma Sowell, RIP

Wichita’s herb grower extraordinaire Norma Sowell died this week. Norma was known as “the herby lady,” and she dispensed information and her love of growing and cooking with culinary herbs at many a talk in town. She once shared with me (and Eagle readers) her favorite culinary herbs: Genovese basil, German thyme, Greek oregano, chives, Hill Hardy rosemary, garden sage, French tarragon, lemon thyme, chervil and summer savory. Do you have a favorite tip from or memory of Norma?
