I love fresh herbs. I am so spoiled that I find the ones in the bottles to be tasteless. The only bottled herbs I make much use of are black pepper, cumin, cinnamon, poultry seasoning, fines herbs, cloves, bay leaf, and anise. From the garden I like the fresh rosemary, thyme, Mexican tarragon, oregano, mints, lemon grass, chili peppers, kaffir lime, ngo gai, cutting celery, green onions, ginger, roselle, and fennel . Bay leaves are better dried. Fresh dill, cilantro, borage, safflower, fenugreek, and shiso are seasonal.
I have a hard time growing basil now because of downy mildew. I tried Eleonora but while it lasted longer it still got the disease. I have to wait for a more resistant strain or get used to using holy basil since it is more resistant.
