I'm looking forward to having fresh rosemary always available again.
Good point about the hail.

I had a rosemary plant that I really just ignored. It was in a pot on my back deck and it survived over 2 years with just the water from rain. Yeah, our winters aren't brutal, but that thing just kept going. I ended up giving it away, I figured if it was that determined to survive, that it should at least be taken care of!

It doesn't really need to be taken care of, in the right climate. It grows naturally on sunny hillsides along the Mediterranean. I had my rosemary shrub for over 20 years in my herb garden, which we rarely watered because most herbs thrive with neglect. A major exception is basil, which we plant with our tomatoes. I thought my rosemary died in our (relatively speaking, New Englanders ) brutal winter of 2013-2014 and bought a new one, but it came back from the roots.

Yup--got a recipe s/where that I have made many times where you make a tomato sauce and then cover pork chops with that. I have been so busy, I haven't had time to pull it out, but is really tasty.
