Marc and I will be growing a small potted garden on our balcony again this year. Last year, we had chives, chocolate mint, rosemary, basil and oregano. We found that we used the chives, mint and basil the most. and, often times, we had to wait for more to grow before digging in. This year, we plan to grow double of each and we may also add some tomatoes and hot peppers.
Here is a great article from Green Lemonade about basil and why you should include it in your diet for more reasons than it tastes amazing! (link)
