each year, i'd been trying a few herbs in small clay pots indoors on a south-facing windowsill. a few did OK, but none ever really did very well. this year, i am trying them in larger pots (about the size of standard metal coffee cans) and will be setting them outside, at least during the day. we live in a pretty hot and dry climate, so i put a paper towel into the bottom of each pot, hopefully to help retain moisture. here are the 14 herbs i am growing this year. french tarragon cilantro/coriander spearmint fernleaf dill rosemary italian flat-leaf parsley sage genovese basil chives oregano marjoram savory thyme lavender we'll see how they do this year!
