IDK if i call it a green thumb...lol..my mom used to call it a super thumb..hers was the black thumb.. she could make a live forever plant croak... But i have been known to grow basil and tomoto's over 5 feet high and produce alot.. Next year i plan on trying my hand at broom corn.. grows 16 feet tall. it's what they use to make brooms from.. and i figure it would suffienciently block out my one PITA neighbor..lol...

i have not read the article yet.. but i was raised with 2 parents that did use heral rememdies on us..i think they are a good first line of defense.. I use them on myself and my own children.. However.. I do keep a staple of ibuprofen and acetaminphen in the house just in case... But i think if more people gave herbs a try.. they'd see the benefits...after all drugs are JUST synthetic versions of most herbs...

you're very welcome.. If you want a clump now they're very easy to transplant and you'd have plenty of time for it to establish.

the staple herbs in my garden are oregano, thyme, sage, Rosemary, chives, lemon balm and peppermint.. lemon balm you can take a few leaves.. crush them in your hand and rub on your skin and it's a natural bug repellent.. works better than commercial spray... I need to seperate my sage plants and chives next spring.. so keep them in mind if you're looking for some.. I'm free!

I grow three out of five of those. I love fresh herbs.
