Parsley, Sage, Rosemary and Thyme

We're due for a hard freeze soon, and I had this thought: does anyone want some fresh herbs? I have a HUGE sage bush, TONS of rosemary, and best of all, a nice amount of tarragon- the spice of the gods. Can you think of anything better than fresh, pungent rosemary inside a roasting chicken and worked between the skin and meat? Or tarragon in scrambled eggs, or mixed in with the ricotta in the very best lasagna? So, if anyone's interested, please PUH-LEESE come by my house and snip, snip all you want. Herb-infused vinegar in cute bottles for Christmas presents? Hung on the walls of your kitchen with ribbon to dry? You'll find my herb garden right outside my kitchen door. Seriously, don't even call. You can come in the dead of night, dressed in black if you don't want me to see you. The first really hard freeze will kill most of it so run, don't walk to my kitchen door and take all you want!

If only I lived closer. I am running out of all my spices!

You definately are a wonder woman, growing your own spices even. I might have to get some pointers from you next year. I haven't had a garden since I was little living with my Mom and Dad. Pretty sad!
