Just received my new herbs yesterday in the mail.
Because it was so late in the season, us getting the new house and just plain caught up in setting up the house, I cheated and ordered some herb plants online.
I went to herbfresh.com, and was able to get all my herbs except phor rosemary which at the time was out of stock.
They arrived in beautiful condition. They are small starter pots and i want to transplant soon so i can get them growing. I'm just going to put them in 6" pots or a window box phor the winter and then plant outside in spring. I got Cilantro, thyme, sage, italian parsley, 2 types of basil, and oregano. These are all a must phor our meals. I missed having them this summer, living on the road and at a phriends. I actually had to go buy them and have phound that they are very hard to get in my area supermarkets. Some produce people looked at me like i was nuts asking phor 'em.
They're here and i'm excited, soon i'll be able to have the freshest of the fresh!!!!!!!!!!!

sounds great I sure wish we had more good windows for plants, we only have three that get good sun...so, when winters here...we can't hardly see outa the south facing windows
phresh herbs in season are fantastic, dried herbs (homegrown) are great...the stuff you buy in the stores...How many POUNDS of any one herb lays around in a huge warehouse somewhere, and is already OLD...when it reaches your store. I bet you're gonna be cooking up some great dishes with yer fresh herbs...

Cilantro is a lot hardier than i thought. I always plant it twice, but it bolts so fast here in the heat, I never had any left at first frost. Well this year I planted 3 times, just went out today to see how it's doing. It's been as low as 19ºF here (z6 TN) so far and it's still green and bushy but keeping a low profile. I didn't taste it to see if the flavor is holding.
