What system do people use to grow herbs? I used to have a kit with fairly small pots, but I was single and didn't cook as much so the amount was fine. I tend to use a lot of basil (regular and lemon), oregeno and thyme in the summer when I can get it fresh. I've considered just a large pot, but I'd love some creative ideas if others have them.
I also have a very active squirrel/rabbit/opossum (ick) population around our yard so I'll have to find a way to cover the plants if I want to have any chance of actually getting to use the fruits of my labor. Any not too ugly solutions?
I am not a gardener at ALL. I actually hate gardening, but I felt like I spent way too much money on herbs at the farmers market when I know this is something I can grow.
