Back when I was a teenager, I used to grow herbs in
pots on my parents' back verandah (handy for the
kitchen).  Oddly, the chives were the hardest to keep
alive!  I couldn't harvest them more than two-three
times every six-eight weeks.  The mint was okay but
the *real* guerilla herb was, believe it or not, the
coriander!  *Nothing* killed that plant.

Except of course six weeks of no water after I moved
out.  (I left them in my parents' care and my dad has
no memory.)  Still, it lasted the longest of all of

That's the one thing I really wish I had room for - an
herb stand.  Countryboy, I envy you!
