the only one I did this year is basil, the kind for pesto making. Had a complete crop failure. I blame the rather expensive organic potting soil I bought this year. The facts; the plants I started with the Walmart potting soil all, 100%, did beautifully. All the plants, 100%, started in the organic potting soil, did pitiful.

I just restarted the basil in Walmart potting soil over the weekend.

Oh, I see where kadesama calls parsley an herb, I think of it as a vegetable

so add parsely to my short list.

A bunch of basil, including some "lime basil" (??)
Thyme
Rosemary
Parsley
Lemongrass

I went overboard on tomatoes again and ran out of space ...

edited to add that the lemongrass plants almost doubled in size in only 3 days. sort of scary, actually....

this morning I saw someone use this phrase, "I may not have the mental bandwidth ",

I thought it was a great phrase! But it was regarding DNA so would have taken more than normal mental energy!

Kadesma, I just was picking parsley's cousin, celery, which I guess could also be considered an herb

I have Italian, Mexican, and purple ruffled basil; flat-leaf parsley; French and lemon thyme; sage; tarragon; lemon verbena; Greek and Mexican oregano; chives; dill; cilantro; and rosemary. We're also growing fennel and garlic in the herb garden, and I have spearmint in a clay strawberry pot.

Here's a photo of my herb garden from last year:
