Clockwise from top right: mint, thyme, sage and rosemary.

I only see a tiny pic on my phone, so I'm excused if I'm way off.

bingo on thyme, sage, and rosemary.

That's not mint on the top right. I love growing mint, but none in this bucket.

Also, the center is hardest to see in the pic, but that's still up for grabs (click to see full size to help). It's also arguably the hardest of the 5 to recognize because few people I know buy it fresh, and it's not all that distinctive. I grow lots of herbs and still might have struggled on the center herb even though I've grown it many times in the past.

boy - singular :)

my eldest had some dragonfruit for shehecheyanu rosh hashana, and loved it so much we now buy it whenever it's available.
"Spiritual wants and instincts are as various in the human family as are physical appetites, complexions, and features, and a man is only at his best, morally, when he is equipped with the religious garment whose color and shape and size most nicely accommodate themselves to the spiritual complexion, angularities, and stature of the individual who wears it."

"The despotism of heaven is the one absolutely perfect government. An earthly despotism would be the absolutely perfect earthly government, if the conditions were the same; namely, the despot the perfectest individual of the human race, and his lease of life perpetual. But as a perishable perfect man must die, and leave his despotism in the hands of an imperfect successor, an earthly despotism is not merely a bad form of government, it is the worst form that is possible."

-Mark Twain

Basil. Is the middle watercress? Hm I guess it's not an herb.

Right on basil. No on watercress. Center is definitely an herb - a common one too, just not generally used fresh (big hint there). And now you know which because of an off thread convo ... but keep others guessing.

Fennel!

My poor SO still thinks that a Batya is a what, and not a who.

Ooooh, good one! Are they arubutus berries?

CS - yours is SO CLOSE to being a lychee, but something is off.

The color/shape seems off to me as well, as lychees are usually more pink and oval shaped, but it looks very similar.

Nope, not lychees. They are native to only China, apparently. Some sort of berries called 杨梅 (Yang Mei, pronounce like' young may') - have a pit in the middle and are supposedly to die for.

You got it. I'm actually thinking of raising a dozen or two of these in my new apt, for the eggs.

Can I guess, since I don't remember what you planted beyond the ones already named?

I'm pretty sure they never stop looking like tiny birds, no matter what you do to them...
