Chervil in a Pot

Here's some chervil in a pot sitting on the front lawn. It's kind of pretty, like a fern.

My wife has asked me to grow this stuff for two years, so I finally ordered some seeds. I'm not entirely sure what you do with it. It's an herb very similar to parsley, but other than that, I'm in the dark. I asked my wife what she wanted it for and she cryptically said, "You put it in stuff to make it taste better." Thanks for clearing that up, wifeypoo.

Edit: There is also another plant in that pot, but I don't know what it is. If you blow the photo up by clicking it, you can tell that the fernlike leaf in the lower right corner is not the same as the rest. It's some kind of micro-green grown to be added to hoity-toity salads. I apologize that I can't give it a name. But it's not too gross as salad greens go. Kind of peppery, like arugula, but in a good way.

EMBARRASSING UPDATE: After tasting the leaves of that thing in the lower right-hand corner a few times, and finally deciding that it tasted pretty bad, I decided to remove it. Guess what it was. A frickin' carrot! I ate the leaves of a carrot at least four times. Just a head's up - carrot tops don't taste good :).
