Your herb garden sounds wonderful. Let us know what you end up doing with the pineapple sage. My kids gave me an orange mint plant for Mother's Day. I thought I would use it like regular mint--as a garnish, in iced tea, or dried for hot tea. I have mint, oregano, thyme, rosemary, chives, parsley, and sage. I should dig some tarragon from my mom's house...

Madeline,

I certainly enjoy having fresh herbs. I'm not sure what I'll do with the pineapple sage. It smells wonderful, but doesn't taste especially good, at least in raw form (which is also true of regular sage, IMHO). I now have sweet, licorice, cinnamon and purple basil planted, and I'm looking forward to it getting big enough to harvest. We eat a lot of it raw, an addition to the lettuce in green salads, as well as using it in cooking.

I'm also going to put in some fennel this year
