Window Sill Herbs
Chervil gone wild! Our plant is taking over our window sill. Not even sure what to use it for aside from French cooking. You wouldn't know that it is difficult to propagate based on how ours is performing. Its in the carrot family, and it looks like the greenery from a carrot top. Tastes kind of like grass. Maybe it will taste better once it is dried. We'll try that and see what happens.
We also have some Melissa Lemon Balm that is a water hog; it can drain an aqua globe in a couple of hours. It supposedly can be very invasive in the garden, but it's been fairly happy in its pot. Makes a lovely tea for a sore throat.
