Near the beginning of last April, I brought home the first green things of the year: parsley, basil, thyme, and a variety of mints — chocolate, orange, ginger, and peppermint. Then, near the very end of April, I brought home five more: sage, chives, oregano, chamomile, and curry leaf. I have grown neither chamomile nor curry leaf before — so I feel I am in for a grand adventure. Here is their progress, so far:
