There is no point in growing tomatoes if you don't grow basil. What are the herbs you grow to eat?

I've only started growing garlic in the past few years. Howie, it was a surprise to me how easy it is to grow. We could never limit ourselves to just three, could we? Thank you.
Once folks are at your level of expertise, a limit of three is just wrong. sallieannluvslife, are your herbs gown in an herb garden or alongside vegetables and flowers?
Hi Patsybell! I actually converted a flower bed into an herb bed for the bulk of my herbs, but I do grow a few - like chives and sometimes mint (spreads like wildfire) - in planters. How about you?
My herbs surround the patio in tiered raised beds. There is some shade for tender herbs. The mints are planted in long round terra cotta drain pipes for control. In the garden, are many herbs planted as companion plants and to attract pollinators.
Wow! That sounds awesome! We have really sandy soil here so I had to convert to raised beds for my garden last year (not my strawberries). Maybe I will take some hints from you and plant some herbs as companion plants in my garden this year.
Are you growing all these now? You can teach us a lot about medicinal herbs. How about a hub?
I think those are great choices. I have 4 kinds of mint and it would be hard to give any of them up. Thanks for you advice.
I can see sticking to one herb would be a tough decision for you too. I can't even limit myself to one kind of basil. Thank you for your response, fellow herb gardener.
I add mint to my tea, and use it in some recipes, but never just simple mint tea. I like your pick because it is so versatile. Great Suggestion.
I like your choices. It seems like fresh summer herbs just invite Mediterranean cuisine.
Ah, Carb Diva, I hear you. Thanks for the reality check. If I can help you grow some herbs you would like to grow, please ask.
I love parsley. It wouldn't be summer without tabouli. Thank you.
Those perfect purple chive blooms are the surest sign of spring in my garden. And I love making chive herb vinegar. Thank you.
