Culinary Herbs. bought eight 4-inch

Culinary Herbs. bought eight 4-inch herbs today (two of each): parsley, onion chives, greek oregano, tarragon. little did i know that "french" tarragon is what one uses for cooking. russian tarragon, which is what i bought, is a poor substitute. worse, french tarragon is not only not too happy to grow in houston, but is also hard to find.

the south texas unit of the herb society of america does have some advice for growing herbs in houston: "raised beds." i need more raised beds...
