I always bring my rosemary indoors to overwinter, however the sage is a perennial and does just fine along with the other perennial herbs @Swiss. I've never had parsely last more than one season in a pot, however apparently it will go for two seasons planted in the ground. I'm curious to see if any of the seed that developed on it will revive it next Spring. Thyme is like a weed and it will continue to grow nicely as will oregano and chives. Although I did dry a lot of herbs, if there isn't too much snow on the ground in late November I can usually pick fresh herbs for Thanksgiving dinner. So nice. Time to get moving now. Have a great day everyone.
I just love my backyard view.

I would bring the rosemary in, but figured I'd do that when we have our own house (it would end up in the basement where I would forget about it). Plus, with how much it grew in one season, I figure I'll be ok with starting from seed again.

I thought I read that sage is an annual. Hmm......... maybe it said perennial, but my brain translated it to annual🤪.

I'm sure most of it will die, and I will just start again from seed next season!

That really is a pretty view!

My rosemary is about 10 years old too! It hates coming in for the winter, but it usually makes it ok.

Sage survives outside in the winter here, mine is a few years old. Same with the mint & thyme. I go out & knock the snow off the thyme & use it. :gig

Phew, we canned 107 jars of jam today. I am DONE canning for the season. Yay!!! :wee Now I'm on the heating pad with a vodka cocktail. LOL

Good morning gardeners. The weather has been a bit warmer here. I have one more okra that should be ready to pick tomorrow. I find that very funny since it's a warm climate plant. Rain is in the forecast later today, however I will have time to get some outside work taken care of. My impatiens continue to do well inside and the smaller plant has even developed some flower buds.

I’m so jealous! We have gotten our first snowfall this afternoon and it is still snowing. This is part of my front flower garden:
