    This is a must-have in my garden. It’s calming–my husband can tell if I’ve skipped it for a day! It’s delicious in lemon quick breads & as a sauce (boil with onion, tomato, salt & a generous amount of olive oil) that’s good on pasta, eggs, lentils (etc.). Keep it trimmed if you don’t want it self-seeding all over the garden. It grows *very* easily from seed!

    Germinates very well, and makes for a sturdy plant, but not much for flavor. That could be our Oklahoma climate — the soil is notoriously poor here, so I probably just need to keep working on my beds before trying again.
