      I love these spices, didn't know they help keep the bugs away. I'll have to keep that in the back on my head when planting tomatoes. I've entered your name in the give-away, good luck!

    1. Sharon,

      Great spice selection. Have you noticed Thai basil taking over your garden? My basil took over the entire area in the garden bed. I've entered your name in the drawing, good luck!

  10. I haven't had much luck growing them actually. Other than Rosemary, which I couldn't kill off until the Moose dug them up and thought he could move them. Then they died off, and I haven't been able to get any back or to grow well. I've tried but the deer seem to love my Stevia, parsley, basil and dill plants. Ate them down to bare stems.

    I'm hoping to set up a small herb garden in our new planter boxes. I just have to do some more research on what will tolerate the heat here (just because they sell them in the store doesn't mean they're even for here in Central FL), or be able to move them to shady areas on property, etc.

    1. Izzy,

      Rosemary grows like crazy when planted in gardens. It's always so healthy, and grows like a tree. I think a small herb garden will looks great in those new planter boxes. I've entered your name in the give-away, good luck!

  11. I have my four clumps of chives that come up year after year. Always grow lots of parsley as I dry tons of it. Dill, of course, because of my pickling mania. CANNOT grow basil for anything. Probably 'cause our summers aren't hot enough. Oregano, rosemary, coriander, thyme, sage . . . I get kinda carried away.

    1. Mama Pea,

  12. I haven't really gotten my planning together for this Spring. It will be our first attempt at a real garden in many years. I know my wife is planning to grow herbs in her plant room, in big pots. We'll see how it develops.

    1. Harry,

      Growing herbs in pots is a great idea. It makes having the herbs closer to the house, and at your finger tips when cooking. I'm sure your wife will have a hefty herb harvest this spring. I've entered your name in the give-away. Good Luck!
