    I made the mistake of planting mint in an open bed. (what a mess) stuff took over the whole bed and ended up having to round up to get rid of it.

    Gonna try some herbs myself this year, after planting a rosemary bush last spring it has been great having fresh Rosemary all winter. It appears to have survived the winter although the tips got burned off a month or so back.

    eman: good to know about the mint

    Well mixed success with the herb garden.  Rosemary, Lavendar, chives, thyme, did fine.  Oregano, basil, sage, all died.  Did some research and found many herbs do porly with wood chip mulches.  OOPS>  Next year will set some clay pots in the bed partially burried and go that route.

    We have herbs scattered around the yard, but are in the process of making a raised herb garden near the back door so it's more convenient to get to them. Fresh herbs sure taste better than dried, but don't forget you have to use a little more fresh to get the same flavor.
