May the Best Herb Garden Win

So my wife and I got into a little pissy contest about growing herbs and even though none of us has ever had any success at growing anything before we somehow felt that through all of our research that we know what it is that we are doing. We both have different gardening styles. I'm the throw-the-seeds-down-and -let-nature-take-its-course kind of gardener. My wife on the other hand is the very meticulous-calculated-one-inch-spacing-means-one-inch type of gardener. So it's to no surprise that when the conversation about herbs came up we both had our own ideas on how to grow the best herbs. There is one thing that we both have in common and that is we like herb bowls that grow a variety of herbs in the same space. But this is where we branch off, Because same space for me is piled up on top of one another and for my wife that means it needs to be spaced out a little bit. So needless to say we started a little contest on who's going to grow the better herb garden. I must admit, my herb garden does seem a bit crowded but I like the lush greeny foliage of everything that I can't even make out. All I know is that I have a little bit of this and little bit of that going on in there. For now both of our Herb garden bowls seem to be doing very well. Although I have noticed clippings of some herbs from my bowl. I think My wife is trying to cheat and use all my herbs up first.

Yours does look a tad crowded. She might be doing you a great big favor by clipping some. :)
