These are the herbs I have that so far survived the winter,but are all in fairly small pots. I have been reading about how great parsley is for you, and intend to grow a lot more this year. I hope to move to a place where I can actually plant in the ground. If not, it will have to be containers. I read that "Parsley is just like an immune-enhancing multi-vitamin and mineral complex in green plant form" and it tastes even better home-grown. I put some (from the store) in my food processor and after blending it, it was easy to add to stuff. I know for years and years I had thought that "some day I want an herb garden" and here I am almost 50! What am I waiting for? I guess I did have some in pots over the years, and just moved too much. But now, I'm gonna keep trying and plant more. Some medicinal herbs are better grown in the ground, like comfrey which gets HUGE. It is about that time to be planting. Cilantro helps get the heavy metals out, so that will be one of my focuses also. I am just so excited! I have been kind of "on the road" and had stuff in storage for a long time, so growing things, for me, is definitely a way to feel human again. Homeless people don't have gardens. And even though I haven't been "under-the-bridge" homeless, I have been halfway homeless for several years due to the economy and health issues. But that is another story. It just makes growing a garden that much more happiness inducing.
