I have enjoyed cooking with it already. It rained 2.5" so I am not walking into the garden. Here is a picture of the plant though. View attachment 41473
It looks very healthy. The more you pinch the tips the bushier it will get. Mine got over 5 feet tall and almost that round! I didnt grow any this year because I have a lot dried that I need to use up.

Looks like something we’d like; however we’re a bit “out of the zone”, and i dont want more “special needs stuff” in the greenhouse.

one year some mint and sage got combined during the drying process (my poor tagging) and it was wonderful. To the point we’ve made that boo-bo several times since then, on purpose!

Another sleeper for us was Rosemary, good ole in your stuffing Rosemary also makes a great stand alone tea! One of those “leave you with a warm comfortable feeling” after drinking it!

I blended pineapple thyme and basil into panko and used it on some tenderized chicken and fresh picked jalapenos I stuffed. Steamed some beans from the garden as well, with brown basmati rice.

Will it overwinter or do you replant in the spring? I had a big Rosemary bush that I planted some 6 years ago, but the -6F degrees we had last winter took it out. I miss my Rosemary Focaccia bread!

It is perennial here to 20f so maybe I will be able to find a south wall for it.

Some 8-10 years ago differently scented sages/mints were ALL THE RAGE. Today, they seem to be hard to find.
I never purchased scented sages, but I DO have peppermints, spearmints, and chocolate mints, and, if I really loved chocolate I would be cooking with it bc it's VERY nice smelling.
