Mmmmm…basil, perfect for making pesto

Mark your calendars: Painter’s Greenhouse in Old Fort has its 5th Annual Herb Festival coming up the weekend of April 11-12. Craftsmen, musicians, herbalists and cooks will entertain visitors on Saturday and Sunday at this gem of a greenhouse and nursery.

Painter’s Greenhouse is a great example of a family-owned and operated agri-tourism business. They grow all plants onsite, and every plant we’ve gotten from them has thrived. We definitely can’t say the same about some of the other nurseries and garden centers we’ve tried. We have yet to buy herbs from Painter’s, but this year we’ll be adding to the herb garden and plan to get over to Painter’s Greenhouse to hopefully get some really great herbs.
