I'm Marcy Lautanen-Raleigh growing herbs is a passion I've had for more than 20 years now. The Backyard Patch is my own herb business started in 1995. I specialize in fresh, amazing, organic blended herbs. Those for cooking, tea and bath -- and they are all home-grown and hand-blended. In the last 20 years I have gained a knowledge of herbs and their flavors that I share here.
is this website called HolidayInsights.com that posts information about
holidays, National days and other stuff like that. Under the heading of
Bizarre and Unique Days I often find something interesting to post about when I
am at a loss for ideas. When I was surfing there one day, I found
National Tortilla Day.
February 24, is National Tortilla Day.
The website did not know the origin of the day, but their guess was a
tortilla company may have started it.
I thought it was an unusual day for it -- in Winter, not picnic season

tortilla chips with a quick and easy dip, and if you are cold be sure to add some hot peppers!
