Re: Any Herb-Lovers Here?

Rosemary & dill are good, tho I don't know if they grow in pots.  If your mint gets large/healthy, put some in a bare/out-of-the-way/contained  spot in your yard & it will spread/flourish for a few years.  Fun, when it gets tall, to pick a leaf & eat it.  All your herbs can be frozen in plastic snack bags, whenever you have a surplus.  When we lived in NY state, chives grew wild in the lawn-----just be careful of something like that if you have a dog.  Our present dogs keep digging thru the lawn for something they like----I'm wondering if they're after wild carrots, since they love the mini variety in our fridge. 

Just remembered, some people use certain flowers-----nasturtiums in salad------geranium leaves [the old-fashioned scented kind]often garnished our plates at a restaurant we used to frequent-----pretty sure I ate those, & violets----can't remember how they're used.  There are books/articles on that sort of thing, or you could google it. 

Things grown on a porch green right up, once they hit that outdoor air/light.  Wonderful for tired houseplants, & the screens do help somewhat with plant 'sunburn.'   I put most there, except for the messy asperagus ferns.   Less cleaning if they're not part of the porch scene.  I use folding metal shelves, [which go from porch to an upstairs room in winter] as well as very cheap round covered wire & plastic plant stands from the dollar store, plus a few [discount store] ceramic pots [accumulated over time] in an accent color-----into which some plants in nondescript pots are popped for the summer.    CS
