My new apartment has a ledge over the kitchen sink that’s simply begging for cheerful houseplants. Combine that with my desire to keep growing fresh herbs after the move, and you can understand why I was so thrilled that The Kitchn blog pointed me to a fabulous Chow article on growing herbs indoors. The article explains why peppermint, lemongrass, and chives are easiest, while basil and sage are best avoided by the indoor gardener. The author also details proper watering and feeding protocol, which, as a total gardening nincompoop, I really appreciate. If you’ve ever wanted to grow herbs indoors, or — from one brown thumb to another — if you’ve ever killed herbs indoors, you might check it out.
