|My Driveway Garden|
We have had more than one night in the 20 degree range and I harvested fresh Parsley last week for a recipe I was preparing. I also put some in a little vase in my sunny kitchen window over a week ago. It's so cold outside that I wanted it handy so I don't have to go out and cut more. As you can see, it's happy there with the ivy cuttings I'm rooting. I also put some sprigs of fresh Bay leaves in the vase too. I Keep my Sweet Bay tree in the greenhouse over winter. It would not survive a frost.

Other herbs that will survive the cold and are useful in winter recipes are Mint, Rosemary, Thyme and Sage. All these are also growing in the big containers near the Parsley.
