Garden Windows

Create a kitchen garden full of herbs like chives, parsley, basil and thyme right on your window sill. Just make sure they get at least five hours of sunlight a day (or use fluorescent lights or an indoor grow light), to monitor its moisture as indoor air can get too dry. Fight off insects by bathing or spritzing the plants with soapy water. When ready to harvest, snip often to encourage growth, but not more than a third off the plant at a time.
