Sometimes I think about how much money I spend on fresh herbs and shudder. The fact is, they’re very expensive, and it’s hard to use them all up before they get old and slimy. While I’d love to grow my own herbs, the reality is I don’t have much luck with anything other than basil. I can’t even keep a thyme plant alive longer than a week. Any amount of “green thumb” in my genes begins and ends with jade plants and cacti.
