Being new to Oklahoma (I'm a California transplant) I am having to deal with furry things and weather I never dealt with before. I am going to try a fresh herb garden this year anyway :D I already have some seeds started in a green house. 

Any suggestions for other period cooking herbs? 

Right now I have Rosemary, Tarragon, Marjoram, basal (purple), and lemon Balm. I don't know how period any of those are but they are a start :) 

Did they infuse oils with herbs back then like we do now? Or similarly anyway..

Grow?  Not difficult at all depending on your zone.  It's a bubl.  Now,
pretectic it from the furry tailed little b at stards that will eat it in my
yard is another thing.  Growing enough to make it worth your while may not
be so hard, but at 3-4 threads per blossom, tops, quantity is something to
think about too.
