I never promised you an herb garden

I hope I didn't jump the gun with getting my herbs outside today...but if I did, they are in containers, so I can bring them inside quickly.

clockwise: Mountain Mint, Parsley and Thyme

Close up of the thyme...and a little lemon thyme on the lower right...

Basil!!!! My favorite summer herb. The hostas are ripping through the dirt in the background.

And some Rose Marie...my favorite autumn herb!

I LOVE it! I'm so doing an edible garden in containers on my balcony this year. On yours and Em's recommendations, I'm reading ANIMAL, VEGETABLE, MIRACLE right now and cannot wait for the farmers' market to open this year. Talked to Naun and Gramps and they are growing: basil, parsley, swiss chard, arugula, tomatoes (LOTS), cucumbers, and I think eggplants. I know you'll be happy to know they also have those silver dollars!

Feel free to bring veggies down this way any ol' time!

Love the pictures. Such green herbaceousness.

What pretty herbs! It's like living in Ina Garten's house. Especially because you'd be surrounded by gay men.
