Okay. It's January and we are having 60-70 degree weather (this week) here in H-town. Gotta love it (not really). I am itching to start my herbs, though. I'd like to try starting herbs from seeds. I plan on using an aquarium as my herb/veggie nursery. I read in a past forum that I should be able to find a "grow light" at Home Depot. Correct? I live in a townhome, and our best windows are on the wrong side of the house in January. Our patio won't get any sun until the summer sultstice....Any advice on the best herbs to start from seed, or is the sky the limit?
I do want to try some companion planting....One of my neighbors uses our "yard" here in the complex for all of her plants, so I might be stealing her idea....to increase my possibilities.

basils seem ta start up wityh seed leaves fast id say try abiy of everything that ya wanna try ive had my seeds startin fer the last oh month atleast id think an tho here the growing season dosent start fer me till like my birthday(6-4) --then re-0seeded an saveable plasnts have revived an that
of the plants that have some up most are still on seed leaves yet tho one (ive started a variety just cause i could) ambrosia seed has real leaves allready an actually its root is really intreasting too
edit fergot i wanted ta do that with a used nicked 37 gallon tank too but it wasnt good enough fer animals it wasnt good enough fer plants tho that tanq woulda been fun (some nics in the corners i noticed when we were re-filling with water fer bfish so we got a new one)
