We grow parsley, basil, sorrel, marjoram, dill, chives, tarragon, rosemary, thyme, bay, sage, and mint. The sorrel, marjoram, chives, sage and thyme are perennials that pretty much take care of themselves. The mint is a pesky invasive weed that we spend a lot of time ripping out. The dill reseeds itself every year. Parsley and basil we start from seed every year – the parsley winters over but because it is bi-annual it goes to seed by the end of July and we need a new crop every year. Rosemary, bay and tarragon are grown in pots that we bring in the house for the winter.
