Fresh thyme is a wonderful savory addition to sauces, soups, stews and egg dishes. It adds a citrus taste to fish, chicken, stuffing or bean dishes.

Thyme is a companion to all plants. It grows best in full sun without much attention. It is a competitor to none and deters cabbage worms.
In ancient Greece, thyme was burned as incense in sacred temples. Thyme was associated with bravery and admiration in medieval times. Thyme oil has been used as an antiseptic in mouthwash and as a topical ointment.
