Spice Garden

I decided to try growing a spice garden on my kitchen window, it gets some good sun. I am a big fan of Gordon Ramsay and he inspired me to use fresh spices. I started about a week ago with seeds for basil, oregano, parsley, also a tomato plant and strawberries. Target has a great dollar section and I found a lot of what I needed there. I haven't always had a green thumb in the past so I didn't want to spend too much to start. The basil came up fast and is doing well followed by the parsley and oregano. I have a nice tomato plant going but the strawberries are just barely there. So the race is on, in first place, basil, oregano, parsley, tomato, strawberry. I will update weekly. I hope they don't crap out on me lol. Wish me luck.

Does anyone have a spice garden?
