Sooo, we cheat. If our green thumbs were...green enough, we'd have started our little gardens a few weeks ago: dealing with soil and seeds and the like. But we're going to admit that we'd rather just go to a nursery and pay a few extra dollars to take home seedlings. We repot them in small pots like these How Does Your Garden Grow Enamel Flower Pots ($42), toss them on a windowsill, and feel satisfied that our chances of killing the things is roughly 50 percent.
