[gardeners] Herbside gardening

I want to have a herb patch this year.  All I've
done in the past as far as herbal endeavors went 
was to plant some chives and parsley.  I need
suggestions that will flourish in central
Mississippi, are easiest to grow, and easiest
to do something with once they're grown.
I have a roughly 4'x4' box that was a sandbox,
but now that Kristen has disobeyed me and
grown up some (I told her to stay 4, but
she wouldn't mind me), she no longer wants
a sandbox (she wants Spice Girls CDs, but that's
another story).  I can use this for my herb
garden, if that's where they'd be happiest,
and I can put it anywhere in my garden I
want.  So, it can go in shade, part shade,
full blazing sun, easy to water, don't care
about water, any of the just-named locations.
Or, I can use that box for something else,
like Giant Mutant Squashoids, if the herbs
aren't rambunctious (i.e., invasive).

I know I've asked this before, but I think
this year I may really do the herbal thing.
