Re:


The only herb I have ever grown is catnip. I used to grow that all of the time. It is very pretty, too.

I like your second link! I really like some of the recipes . . . as though I would ever get around to making them. The pulled pork sounds especially good.

Nanny...that FALL things link is really cool. I've bookmarked that so I can some back to it.
I've never tried [sign in to see URL] indoors or out. But I don't cook with [sign in to see URL] that is why.
**Hugs** on the sad moment. BUT you are learning on how to help yourself out of that mood. I am proud of you. emoticon

Glad this cheered you up!

I haven't really tried growing herbs inside, either. They do need a lot of light. Good luck!

Re: Plant an indoor herb garden


Nanny, you can always set up a grow light to help with growing herbs, or almost any small plants, inside.

I grow several herbs outside: perennial rosemary, sage, thyme, lemon thyme, oregano, marjoram and annual basil. I used to grow parsley and cilantro outside but quit because it is easy to buy and usually inexpensive.

I also grow some lavender but don't use it in cooking. I just like the scent when you brush against the leaves.

I recently cut some basil stems to root in water and planted them in potting soil to grow in the house through the winter. I hope they do well.

Re:


I love lavender, Lucy, I have some plants but the plants here seem so large and untidy for our small garden, I keep looking for a small one.

Rosemary also, I have, and thyme, my thyme doesn`t always do well. they are all outside.

can`t grow basil outside here, I usually sow some seeds each year, but never does that well.. I do add that to my salads , when I remember! emoticon

Lavender is often cut back in the fall. If they aren't cut back they tend to get woody bases and centers.

Yes, definitely cut them back. They grow back quite nicely from the old stems, and they look denser and more solid in the next year.
