I posted a lot when we moved into the new house about how I was't going to dig up anything in the back yard until I'd lived there for a year, and so I was going to concentrate on putting in herbs in pots.
Here's a picture of the results of that effort:
On the bench: orange and chocolate mint, lemon balm, stevia, rosemary, last year's lemon verbena
On the ground: bay, rosemary, chives, more rosemary
Not pictured: big container of parsley, dill, and oregano in the window box; curry plant in a pot on the deck table, five basils I tucked into the existing beds
