My herb garden is in pots, but large ones, that are on castors. When summer comes I wheel them outside, in the winter they come in. I'm a zone 6. They seem to like the large pots as opposed to the smaller ones that are usually associated with herb gardens. Especially since so many of them are spreaders. I keep basil, thyme, oregano, cilantro, parsley and chives on hand, in 2 pots. Rosemary I have outside, but mainly because I like it as a decorative plant as well as for its value in the kitchen. Also, the bigger pots hold more water, so it's less of a problem.
"Is ice hockey hard? I don't know, you tell me. We need to have the strength and power of a football player, the stamina of a marathon runner and the concentration of a brain surgeon. But, we need to put all this together while moving at high speeds on a cold and slippery surface while 5 other guys use clubs to try and kill us. Oh, yeah, did I mention that this whole time we're standing on blades 1/8 of an inch thick. Is ice hockey hard? I don't know, you tell me. Next question."
