Wintertime Green Thumb

Do you miss the great taste of fresh-from-the-garden spices and veggies? Then start a little mini-garden in your kitchen by planting some fresh herbs and vegetables. It's really pretty easy.

All you need are some planters, soil, seeds and light. In well-lit areas, you can grow parsley, chives, mint and rosemary, as well as special-container tomatoes and peppers. Even in light-challenged areas you can grow beans, lentils, radishes and onions. Check seed packets for instructions. Then, get growing!
