Parsley, Sage, Rosemary & Thyme

Herbs seem to be the first time gardeners easy button.  You can grow them in pots and containers of any shape and size along with seasonal flowers and other goodies.  And of course, you can grow them in your Square Foot Garden.  Besides flavor, health benefits abound!
