Out of control herbs

I grow thyme, sage, parsley, basil, mint, (try to grow oregano and rosemary,) and grow an amazing Italian herb called Nepitella. Think of it as a cross between mint, oregano, and sage. It is wonderful with mushrooms and I imagine, great with lamb. It is actually in the catnip family… for what that’s worth.

The important other things to know about it are that it is perennial and grows like a weed. I’ve already had to cut it back hard and started drying it out. on my pot pack. Works great for drying hard herbs. Looks like every one is getting dried Nepitella for Christmas/Hanukkah this year!

My Thyme is flowering and out of control already too. I just made a nice bouquet in a rocks class that classed up the house visually and in an olfactory way.
