I have a little herb family! I have absolutely no access to the outdoors, but I have a great big window in the apartment and after doing some reading, I learned that you can actually grow herbs indoors. I took the plunge despite the fact that I am pretty notorious for killing my plants. In fact I have killed a total of four cacti in the past couple of years. Who kills cacti? Me, apparently. Now I have rosemary, mint, cilantro, basil and chives under my care and I’ve managed to keep them alive for a whole week so far. I have started using them sparingly, trying to give them time to grow. I couldn’t help but use a bit of basil and chives in this spring green soup.
