Gardening: Curry Plant Update

My curry plant is doing well and is getting larger. I haven't transplanted it as I haven't been able to get another one so still haven't decided where I want to put this one.

Last weekend I found a recipe for potato salad using curry plant. I wasn't expecting much as I've heard it isn't really that great for cooking. While it wasn't horrible, it wasn't very good either. It didn't ruin the taste, but there was this strange smokey flavor that I'm sure was from the curry plant. It will definitely be kept for the scent, and not flavoring food.

Your plant looks healthy! will take a pic of mine which i have transpalnted to show you. The good thing about transplanting is they grow a lot bigger but mine doesnt look as healthy as yours. Cant say i havent been watering as it rains every day!!

Mine has just been getting rain water too. I have a recipe for this herb boost stuff that is super easy to make. I can't remember what is in it, but will post if for you. This is the first I've used it and I swear that my herbs have never been healthier. I can't wait to see yours. Is it in a pot or did you transplant it to the ground?
