I’ll be moving into a new apartment in May, and one of the best features about is the windows– tall ones, that run the length of our living room wall, with nice wide windowsills.  My roommates and I are excited to grow our own vegetables.  The only thing is, I’m not quite sure where to begin.

I’m not exactly a green thumb; I’ve managed to keep Ferdinand, my unknown palm-tree like plant, alive for about a year, but Betty the primrose died a slow death about a month after I got her, despite my best efforts to keep her alive.  (Yes, I name my plants.)  So I was hoping some of you lovely ladies would have some advice on how to grow a tasty, inexpensive, and thriving windowsill vegetable garden.  Any suggestions or tips?
