tarragon, oregano, sage and a bench. When we first moved to the Black Hills, I thought that since it snowed, anything I planted in the ground would of course die because of the snow. Obviously, I have never lived in a place where it snows! Anywho, the mint didn't die and has thus multiplied. It's sooo pretty though and smells heavenly. Last year I dried a ton of it and made tea bags. Just mint leaves are do good as a tea. Again, this year I planted more lemon verbena which is amazing herb that every garden should have. It smells like a lemon drop! It doesn't make it through our winter but it's so worth it to plant every year. I buy mine at Gage's on Evan's Lane in Spearfish.
