I finally did it! I grew my own herbs...okay just one herb. It is something I have always wanted to do but never had the space or didn't know how to get started. World Market sold these cute little kits with everything that you need to get your herbs growing. They have several different types and I chose cilantro and chives. The chives went to herb heaven very quickly but I managed to keep the cilantro alive. I find myself wanting to cook Mexican all the time just so I have an excuse to use my cilantro.
