In addition to the vegetable garden, Debra planted an herb garden (in pots) just outside the back door where she can get to it quickly from the kitchen. The herb garden contains house leek, lime thyme, parsley, lavender, rosemary, lemon grass, lemon balm, catnip, curry plant, Mexican mint marigold, chamomile, chives, and amaranth. She also planted some ancho peppers in the herb garden because we didn't have space for them in the vegetable garden. I don't know much about the herbs--that's Debra's department. The only one I use is rosemary, which adds a distinctive flavor to grilled chicken or beef.
