After spending early March enduring not only freezing temperatures but also out-of-the-ordinary snow, Knoxville finally saw its first bit of spring weather this weekend. While it’s still a little chilly out, the sunny skies were just what many of us needed to get started on outdoor projects.

The nice weather inspired me to pick up a couple of seed packets and give my poor roommates a break from all our spring cleaning duties. We started a couple of flowers and spring veggies, but I’m most excited for our soon-to-be kitchen herb garden.

Growing an herb garden indoors isn’t difficult as long as you know what to plant. Herbs like mint and oregano can tolerate low-light conditions and are easily grown from seed, but herbs like basil and thyme require more sunlight and care to thrive.

    Jessica, I love the use of plants to get me through the winter months. I have grown some from seed and also have brought several varieties inside in the fall before the ground freezes. I will try growing herbs next! Thank you!:)<3
