I don’t have to ramble too far for basic herbs lately. I’ve got a few this season right on my porch. This year in addition to a couple basil plants like I always get, I’ve added thyme, a ‘tri color’ sage, some Boxwood basil (tiny leaves), tarragon and oregano. The other stuff growing in the box toward the top of the picture is lavender. The lavender isn’t growing very fast but the other stuff is doing ok.

I’ve used most all of it in various kitchen duty in recent weeks except the oregano. I’m sure I’ll put it to use at some point though.
