It does make cooking more interesting. Do you grow organically? My go-to herbs are sage, oregano and thyme varieties since they're medicinal and culinary. My fav is Italian Oregano that were started from heirloom seeds (from Seeds of Change I think) about 8 years ago -- they're semi-evergreen, prolific, hardy, and very spicy especially during the summer. I've given tons of it away & always have a large harvest through summer & fall with plenty to dry. I also grow basil (always trying new varieties), rosemary, cilantro, parsley, mint, stevia (hard to find & can't get it to reseed or germinate for some reason), tons of lavender & more that I can't think of right now. Also growing edible flowers & a salsa garden (various peppers, onions, garlic, tomatilloes & tomatoes). This year's new addition is summer savory to make Herbs de Provence to give as Holiday gifts. I wanted winter savory since it's a perennial but couldn't find any seeds. Organic dried herbs in spice bottles & other herbal things (herbal remedies, sachets, etc) are usually what I give as holiday gifts these days. It pays for my hobby (addiction).
Do you grow just for your family, commercially, or for the farmer's market? What kind of herbs do you grow? Any interesting or unusual herbs you might suggest?
