Thyme is one of the most popular herbs used in food preparation and medicine. It is interesting to note that it has been thus for many thousands of years.
Thyme is native to most of Europe. It grows wild from Spain to Siberia, especially in the Alpine regions. It came to this country with our earliest settlers and now grows wild in many states. It is the most prolific herb to be found growing wild in the northern regions of the Catskill Mountains.
