Soulcatcher: Sass-O-Rev: I'm a herbicidal maniac and not to be trusted around any sort of potted or gardened plant; I can kill even the toughest. But my entire front/side yard is wild thyme, and it is the most wonderful smelling, beautiful ground cover you can imagine. And lovely to sprinkle into stews, etc.

Thyme is my favorite, hands down. If I had to pick only one herb to use for the rest of my life it would be thyme.

Martha Stewart has a recipe for lemon thyme wafers that are f*cking awesome: Link

Living in Bahrain, most of the grocery stores keep a few staple herbs in fresh supply.  We try to keep a supply of fresh mint on hand so we don't have to pay extra for Lemon w/Mint (handfuls of pureed mint in a sugared lemonade mix with extra fresh lemon squeezed in with pulp).  I try to get fresh basil in once a month for pesto.  Jerjer(sic) is good for salad, mixed with rocket.

A lot of herbs can be used as decorative plants outside your house and picked when needed. We have a huge bush of rosemary growing outside. That said, the dried stuff works just fine for a lot of recipes.

I keep a huge herb garden, alot of it I can still pick fresh in winter.

But even fresh herbs from home dried yourself are 1000x's better tasting than store bought stuff.  I bet alot of that stuff is stored for a year before it even gets to store shelves.
