I remember one of the very first columns I wrote for this paper was on herbs.
At that time, I was just starting to learn how to grow them and use them in cooking. Now they have become such a part of my life that I use them in just about everything I prepare, in one form or another.
Out on my deck, I have a potted rosemary plant that actually survived the winter in that pot and on that deck. Hurrah for me, because I have never been able to keep them alive in my herb garden.
