Although I can grow a thriving kitchen garden and keep the perennials blooming, houseplants are not my thing. To be honest, I just can't keep them alive. I love the idea of having a potted herb growing in my kitchen windowsill, but the reality of it never quite achieves my dreams. Currently, there's this fine rosemary plant sitting there. I apologized to it in advance when I bought it. I'm going to try. I really am. I'm not sure it believes me.
