I can bake it with some chicken and potatoes. Thing is, I bake 1-2 times a month. I could do some chicken breasts and occasionally maybe bake some potatoes with rosemary, but what else is there to do with it?
I am thinking of dried rosemary sachets for the closet, but do I want my clothes to smell like what I associate baked chicken with?
What do you suggest?
I'm going to go pick up their beautiful mint plant for tomorrow, and maybe basil too. But the basil is bigger, I don't think my little balcony would fit. What other herb plants are easy to care for, versatile to use in food and drink and even dried as drawer sachets or put in the bath?

I read some people use the rosemary branches as shish kebab sticks to grill chicken and shrimp, just leave a few leaves on at the bottom.

What do you use to repel insects from the plants?
