For those of us who grow herbs and want some fresh ones all winter, now is the time to take cuttings to root. I have basil and marjoram rooting in a 50/50 mix of perlite and vermiculite. All my other herbs will overwinter in the barn, and be available for snipping. The basil and marjoram will be on an east-facing window sill in the kitchen. They survived last winter (being moved to the counter on particularly cold nights). Fresh herbs, particularly in the winter, are a true joy!
