    I use a lot of herbs and spices in my cooking - especially basil and chives. I am diabetic so I use seasonings to "ramp" up the flavor without adding carbs! Nothing beats freshly grown herbs!

    In that case I may have to try a few. I do have a couple window box style planters that I could use for those items. Thanks for the tip!

    Yes, I use those types of planters myself - put in a very sunny area and water daily!

    Thanks again. I will admit to not being one with a "Green Thumb" so any advise is welcome...

    Do you grow a large garden or just enough to dine on when it is ready to pluck?

    Very cool. Mine is small, but I enjoy watching it come up and of course the aromas from the flowers and the flavors from the garden.

    I want to try parsley, green onions and cucumbers again next spring. I don't know what the heck happened this last season, but my annuals were all stunted.

    And I agree ornamentmaven- nothing like fresh herbs- I'm a new convert!

    I re-did a portion of my backyard this past year and only planted perennials. But, I did grow a couple of Green Pepper plants that are now inside and still producing. Have not yet decided about next Spring...
