    I set up an herb garden on my deck this year. Martha Stewart's magazine has a photo of a three tier, stacked, garden. You need a large wide pot for the bottom tier and two progressively smaller pots. The tiers are separated by up-ended flower pots. I have parsley, cilantro, lemon thyme, sage, basil, oregano and rosemary.

    I do this too! It's really easy.

    I think I am going to do that, too!
Thank you

    I have been growing chives in a barrel close by the house, think I will expand the herbs in there this summer. Thanks for the reminder in time to get them planted.
