Today: No matter whether your thumb is green or black, you can grow these at home.

Rosemary on Food52

Rosemary: Impossible to kill, rosemary goes great with everything.

More: Once you've grown your own rosemary, try drying it at home.


Jalapeños on Food52

Jalapeño peppers: You can grow these in small pots without worry -- and it's super fun to pick your own peppers.  


Mint on Food52

Mint: Remember to plant this hospitable herb in its own planter -- otherwise, it will take over anything else.  


Lettuce on Food52

Lettuce: You can actually grow it in a window box -- and just four heads will supply you fine because the stuff grows so damn fast.

More: Once you've picked your lettuce, be sure to store it right.  


Tomatoes on Food52  

Tomatoes: If you stake 'em, they will grow well and give you quite a harvest, even off just a couple of plants. Just remember to give them a lot of water and fertilizer -- they're hungry beasts.
