Reading all you've achieved in just one day made me feel quite tired...

Sounds as though you've been very busy. I'm sure your herb garden with look great once finished. I sometimes take out tired plants, replenish the soil with some compost and replant. Beds do get overgrown and plants get out of control or grow too large for the space they are in and it feels quite refreshing to have another go.....
