Basil , Rosemary, thyme and a pot of aloe vera

Hello my tomatoes and aloe vera plant are doing well in the warm summer weather and the basil seems to be keeping alive too, I still need to repot the tomatoes though and buy a rosmary bush and some parsley, I think I might buy lettuce seedlings because my lettuce seeds dont seem to have come up and it has been awhile now.
