What kind of scientist and an herb gardener are you? lol
Thanks for the welcome. How are your eight sisters?
I'm a microbiologist working for a biotech company. I manage the bioinformatics division.
But the herb gardening is much more interesting. I grow culinary and medicinal herbs, usually between 30-60 varieties each year (I have to try something new every year to experiment on). My favorite tea herbs are anise hyssop, lemon verbena, spearmint and borage flower. In fact, adding borage flowers to any iced drink is a really good idea. They even work in martinis. And they taste good on salads as well.
Good ol' herbs. You just can't beat 'em. I'm going to eventually try my hand at Camellia sinensis although I don't think I have the best climate for it. Still - gotta give it the old college try.
Thanks again for the welcome!
