This weekend I potted a bunch of herbs and put them out on the balcony. Mint, flat leaf parsley, cilantro, rosemary, tarragon, and chives. I'll probably add dill soon, and was oddly tempted by the savory, too, though I've never used savory in my life.

Hopefully I won't kill them. It was so nice to add some of my own mint to my freshly brewed ginger peach iced tea, and Sunday I spent five minutes trying to decide if I wanted chives or tarragon in my goat cheese omelet (I chose chives.) Tonight I'm even grinding my own fresh coriander. If anyone has any potted herb growing tips, I'm all ears. Like, how regularly is water regularly? Once a day? Twice a day? Morning? Night? Both?
