    YEAH. I agree. We have a nice, wide south-facing window, though, and I've got some lettuce planted and I'm going to start some tomatoes/peppers soon too, in addition to herbs.

    If I ever got a yard, I'd want to have a huuuge vegetable garden with some flowers mixed into it too. Grass is a little silly to me.

    Planting grass only makes sense if you have lifestock, right?

    Much more reasonable to seed the lawn with an edible green, so you have instant fresh salad three seasons a year!

    hello! I've been threatening to plant an herb garden in the backyard for a while... when I get around to it which are your favorite to grow? I know that in the past basil, oregano and cilantro were my most frequently used ones and I tended to get impatient with rosemary for taking too long *shakes fist at rosemary*

    glad you like it here, I find the variety to be appealing actually

    I've been hacking branches off of my Uncle's basil and dill plants, but I too have this annoying habit of eating it before I let it grow...so I keep going back for more!

    Luckily, my Uncle has a very large garden (and the land to go with it).

    It's a big change from being on an INTJ board, that's for sure. Every-other thread there became a multi-page showdown of wits between the regulars, like a never-ending Clint Eastwood film.

    Over-stimulation was a seriously problem...

    I've even been known to nibble on dill plants in other people's yards on occasion

    I've generally had better luck just buying the plants and remembering to water them, though I was thinking of planting some seeds this year!

    and that breed of INTJs will behave such on any forum... that happens sometimes here as well... luckily there are plenty of other threads available too!

    Agreed. I think window boxes of lettuce are quite pretty! And yummy!

    Are you trying to grow these from cuttings? Dill goes to seed quickly and self-seeds readily; best just to collect seeds and plant them. Basil is slower going, but growing from seed usually works well here, too.

    I usually have basil, oregano, rosemary, sage, thyme, marjoram, tarragon, lavender, calendula, and a few others. Much more than I can use, but I give some away, and dry the rest for winter use, since my plants are outdoors and many do not overwinter well.

    I'll probably just do this next season...patience is a virtue I need to cultivate.

    I realized I was taking it a bit too far when I got into a 7-hour argument with some idealistic fool who believed his ingenious plan for a money-free economy would work with real, live humans.

    After about 10 pages of back-and-forth, I just couldn't convince him that money is simply a measure of value, not some mysterious demon that makes men evil.

    Then I had work in a hour, realizing I needed to cool it!
