for general frost free dates in the US. Basil, rosemary, parsley, and chives are some great ones for the kitchen counter. You need to make sure that the area where you plant them will get the best light possible! I would love to have them in our kitchen, but there is not enough natural light, so all of our starts end up on the bathroom counters and the kids windowsills (watch out, you do get spills if you try this!)
We are trying to start some peas indoors this week. They do not usually do well with transplanting, but if you are following along with our gardening progress, I have not had good luck with peas and this will be one of my last and final attempts to get them started. Come on little guys!
