How does your garden grow?

Last year I planted a bunch of different varieties of herbs just to see if I could get them to grow. I knew I would use them in cooking, etc. but I wasn't prepared for how lavish they smell as they grow. 

Look at this gorgeous second year thyme. 
After last year, I picked the ones I like the most to cook with but also the ones I liked the scent of - thyme, several types of basil, dill, coriander, chives and flat parsley. 

I also added several lavender plants to the one that revived from last year. They seem to love this soil. Here's one of them. 

The cilantro is ready for the first batch of salsa. 
And the first tomatoes have started. 
Good times.
