    Hi All,

    I'd like to grow some herbs inside this winter but was wondering what ones do best for you. Obviously, I won't grow the ones I don't like, but I was curious as to the success you're having.

    Maybe I'll grow some just for the scents!

    I just started some small terracotta plants in my kitchen window sil. I am growing chives, basil, cilantro, parsely, majoram, and dill. I would like to grow some sort of mint as well, but I need to send for those seeds as no one around here carries them this time of year.

    Mint grows great inside from cuttings. Maybe you can get cuttings from a neighbor? I got a few from a friend that are Pineapple mint...and it is a gorgeous plant! I will bring it indoors before frost.
