    I love how you can easily drag them down slowly off the stalk. Oh, so satisfying.

    I don't know if I could even identify thyme in the Hell's Kitchen blindfold palatte test.

    In kindergarten, the teacher made each of us grow an herb for Mother's Day. My herb was thyme, so I always have a soft spot for it. Now I have three varieties of it growing in the backyard... good for teas and chicken.

    I don't know where you live but, can you grow it all year? I planted basil in the ground this year for the first time and hope it can survive but early results are not promising. I usually plant herbs in a pot and bring them in when it starts getting cold but I wanted to see how large the basil would get. It's pretty big.

    Thyme dies back a bit but if you really wanted to you could snip a little in winter. We rarely freeze here. Basil on the other hand, never lasts here and for some reason is a herb that I have trouble keeping alive. :dontknow: It sucks because basil and cilantro are two of my favorites.

    We lose Cilantro about as soon as it gets into the 80s. Basil loves the heat and grows like crazy. Chives slow down to stop when it gets down in the 40s. I have some Rosemary in a pot that still looks great.
