Growing an edible garden

Grow some herbs in the kitchen window

Herbs grow quite nice in partial shade with only short periods of sunshine.

I grow some mint, spearmint and garlic chives in small pots indoors in my kitchen window all year round. They only receive an hour or two of sunlight and do very well.

It’s actually better to grow them in a shady window. In full summer sun the pots would dry out very quickly.

Nice to have them close by for quick harvest. Basil and Parsley also do very well in this spot. And because they are grown inside, they stay pretty much pest and fungus free and I can constantly monitor their health and give them what they need.
