Parsley, Sage, Rosemary, and Thyme . . .


Also Bay, Basil, Tarragon, Lavender, a Cherry Tomato, and Cilantro in my porch garden. I have more herbs down in the garden but decided it would be nice to have some handy when I'm cooking. 


I believe I need to add Chives, Dill, and Oregano to the porch gang. Maybe Perilla too, because I've got lots of volunteers down in the garden. It's a pretty purple plant that a friend gave me years ago. It self seeds prodigiously but I don't know really what to do with it. 

A quick search yielded THIS ARTICLE on Perilla aka Shiso. Maybe this will be the year I learn to use it.

Good looking, must smell good too, as well as taste! What's the tree shaped plant in the big blue pot, a gardenia or...?

I bet your porch smells great, I have never been able to keep lavender alive. I envy your green thumb! xx

My husband planted one shiso plant a few years ago and now our herb garden is carpeted with volunteers - all but one have been rooted out. He has used it in fish marinades and in some asian dishes.
