    Well, the herb garden is planted. Wal Mart didn't have any flat leaf parsley, though. Gotta be sure and get that, may check Lowes.

    Have the usual just like the song, parsley, sage, rosemary, thyme. But also have oregano in another location as it is invasive, and mint in another location. Today was warm, but still not too hot to get my plants in the ground!

    No. I've seen apple mint, pineapple, and cat mint. Will watch for it when I shop again.

    Nice. Last year when I was so sick and couldn't dig in the dirt, I put a basil plant in a pot. The squirrels ate the leaves, then came back for the stems, then dug the roots out of the pot. If the do anything this in ground one, I'm having squirrel for dinner!

    The above website says it's good with strawberries and smells like a peppermint patty.
